What will I need to do as an Ambassador?

The smallest of actions can make the biggest difference

Being an Ambassador provides the opportunity to make a difference to a person living with Autism and their families.

As an ambassador you will act as an agent for change through:

  • Enabling autistic people to have a voice
  • Raising an awareness and understanding of autism amongst colleagues, friends and family
  • identifying and influencing reasonable adjustments that can be made to:
    • work processes and practices
    • the environment at work or in the community
    • support and recognise how people engage and communicate with one another
    • plus as many more creative ideas you can think of
  • Build knowledge and sharing of best practice through development of networks

How to become an Autism Ambassador

You can become an Ambassador by attending one of our training days.

Then complete an annual self-assessment of activity undertaken as an Ambassador.

That’s  it.  What you do and how you do it will be up to you. We will be here to support you along the way. Every small change will make a significant difference for people living with autism.

How much does it cost?

It costs just £10.00* to become an Ambassador, payable when booking your training day.

For this you get your initial training day plus all the benefits of being an Ambassador, including the opportunity for you to attend your first free Autism Ambassador Conference.

Established Autism Ambassadors pay an annual membership donation of £5.00* due on 1st April each year. Annual membership ensures you continue to receive the benefits of being an Ambassador, including free access to the annual Conference. You will be contacted by the Scheme’s Administrator before this is due.

PLEASE NOTE: For newly appointed Autism Ambassadors, the annual membership donation will not be due until 1st April of the year following your first Ambassador Conference (this means, depending on when you join, you may get up to 20 months membership from your initial training day).

See Support for Ambassadors for details of the benefits of being an Autism Ambassador.
