Trustee Vacancies

The PDA Society currently have vacancies on their board of trustees and are looking for suitable applicants to fill these vacancies. The PDA Society is a registered charity committed to raising awareness of Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA) which is an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and supporting individuals and families affected by PDA. We also aim to promote further understanding and acceptance of this complex presentation of an autism spectrum disorder to professionals, service providers and the wider public.

This is achieved by, but not limited to, the following means:

* Providing a comprehensive website that is regularly updated to reflect the latest news, research and understanding of PDA
* A range of literature, leaflets and booklets that are freely available on our website and that can also be downloaded
* PDA specific parenting courses and workshops
* Free enquiry line for parents, professionals and adults with PDA
* Raising Awareness of PDA by attending ASD/SEN events
* Fundraising and applying for grants
* Social media including facebook and twitter
* Producing a series of webinars
* Hosting and moderating a parent support forum

Can you help?

Candidates would ideally need to have a good understanding and knowledge of PDA and preferably be the parent of a person with PDA, although this is not essential for candidates who have skills in specific areas that can assist our charity such as IT skills, professional knowledge or experience in the areas of training and delivering workshops.

Candidates would also need to have good organisational skills and be able to work as part of a dedicated team to help the PDA Society deliver its charitable aims and objectives.

In addition to providing the above, suitable candidates would also be required to attend regular meetings, which are currently held once every two months and may involve travel to Nottingham, Stoke on Trent or Rotherham. However, the frequency and location of these meetings may be subject to change.

Please get in touch...
