Youth Patrons

We are recruiting new members for our Youth Council!

Our Youth Council is a group of autistic 16-25 year olds who meet at least four times a year to discuss and plan campaigns, events and consultations. Our Youth Council make sure that all the work we do at Ambitious about Autism reflects the views and needs of autistic children and young people.

To be a member of Youth Council you must be:

  • aged 16-25 years old and living in the UK
  • diagnosed with autism
  • able to attend meetings in London and events across the country (we will pay reasonable travel expenses, provide lunch and practical support so that you can take part and contribute). 

You do not need any experience to apply for this role!

We really want our Youth Council to represent the range and diversity of the whole autism spectrum. This means that we are particularly keen to hear from autistic young people who use assistive communication methods, those who have a learning disability or have never been involved in such an opportunity before. You do not need to have any experience to apply.
