Job description

Our vision is a world where all disabled young people get to lead the life they choose

Our mission is to give as many young people with disabilities or autism the opportunity to lead fulfilling lives

 

AFK supports disabled children and young people to live independent and fulfilling lives.

 

There are two main themes to our work: employment and mobility. We help disabled and autistic young people aged 18-25 to develop important life and work skills so they can live more independently and move into paid employment or self-employment. On the mobility side we provide specialist mobility equipment not available on the NHS to disabled children and young people up to their 25th birthday, across the UK.

 

This is an exciting time to be joining AFK as we have recently completed a strategic review across our services and fundraising portfolio. There are 14 million disabled people in the UK and we know disabled people suffer unemployment disproportionately. As we come out of the pandemic our work is more vital than ever to ensure that disabled and autistic young people have the support they need to live a fulfilling life.

Trustees play a crucial role in setting and supporting AFK’s strategy. Most of our Trustees have served on the Board for a long time - increased due to pandemic restrictions. We have now instituted Board rotation terms and are looking to recruit nine Trustees including a Chair and Treasurer.
