National Autistic Society Researcher
The National Autistic Society (NAS) are looking to find out what it is that’s important to autistic people, and how well NAS are meeting their needs.

Volunteers are needed to conduct good quality surveys, interviews and research. Training will be provided on research ethics and how to engage with autistic people.

Contact Colette Hampson at volunteers@nas.org.uk to find out more.

Sheffield on a Plate
Sheffield on a plate is an opportunity to engage with people of varying ages to teach them about the food crisis and solutions to it.

By joining Sheffield On A Plate volunteers get the opportunity to make a difference in the world. This is done by easily giving a talk to students or by teaching younger children how to cook with food that is usually wasted!

If you’d like to get involved with Sheffield On A Plate please email volunteering@sheffield.ac.uk to register your interest.

Or, join the Sheffield On A Plate group on Facebook for updates and opportunities to volunteer.
