Volunteering and work

Voluntary work means working unpaid for a short period of time. This is a good way to gain valuable experience, and to learn new skills and build self-confidence.

When you volunteer for an organisation directly connected to the kind of work you want, they can help develop your skillset for your ideal role.

Work experience

Your school or college might be able to offer you work experience. This would be a short period of time working for a local company, usually without pay.

This will allow you to experience what it's like in a workplace environment.

Finding work

The National Autistic Society (NAS) have published an Ebook, entitled Finding Work. This digital workbook is designed to support you through the job finding process with information and activities at each stage.

The National Autistic Society provides advice on autism and they also have advice for people with autism in the workplace
