About Us:

Appeer is a Community Interest Company (CIC) set up to deliver services that support autistic girls and women (and those assigned female at birth) to connect with peers, to develop their life/work skills and to support their wellbeing.  We provide in person and online activity groups and programmes, alternative provision, events and resources for those in the community that we serve, their parents/carers and other professionals. We are not a therapeutic setting and as such do not offer clinical support or 1:1 supervision. We were established in 2019 and have since grown rapidly from a small startup to a robust small-medium  enterprise with a turnover of £250k and serving well over 400 beneficiaries a year.


All our work is firmly rooted in a ‘positive peer approach’, providing an enjoyable, pressure-free and beneficiary-centred space for connecting with others and exploring interests and hobbies in a place they can truly be themselves. We also facilitate light touch exploration of autism and the discovery and sharing of helpful tools and approaches for navigating the neurodivergent experience.

Our aim is to safeguard and enhance our beneficiaries’ wellbeing, build on their strengths, foster peer support and social networks and promote a positive outlook, whilst never dismissing the challenges they may face. We categorically reject a deficit-based view of neurodivergence and work on the basis that all brains are different and deserve equal respect, freedom and scope for expression.

Appeer is led by lived-experience staff and volunteers, and we strive to maintain an inclusive, supportive and creative working environment where everyone feels supported to do their best. 

Application Process:

Interested candidates are invited to submit a CV and cover letter outlining their interest, suitability and vision for the role by 5pm on 12th August  2024. We encourage early application as we reserve the right to close the application window sooner than 12th August 2024 if a suitable shortlist of candidates has been identified.

Appeer is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees. We are also committed to ensuring a fair and equitable recruitment process for all vacancies.

Please let us know if you require any reasonable accommodations in order to effectively access the recruitment process.

If you would like any further information about the role or application process, please contact: Claire Livingston who may arrange a conversation with the CEO or a director with you.


This job is funded in part by a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund which will be funding 24 hours per week of this role.

This job is subject to a criminal records check with the Disclosure and Barring Service.
