Trustee Staff and Volunteers

Trustees, Staff & Volunteers

PACT for Autism is a registered charity limited by guarantee, originally established as PACT Harlow in December 2005. The charity is run by a small team of staff and volunteers, most of whom are parents of young people with autism, as well as professionals with a special interest in Special Educational Needs (SEN).   This means that we can truly understand the needs of our beneficiaries and deliver a more personal service to parents and carers.

As at June 2019, the charity had 371 parents/carers and professionals registered to receive our services.

PACT for Autism is governed by the board of trustees.  There are currently four trustees which include a retired Special Educational Needs Professional, Tax Accountant, Education Professional, Essex Police Inspector, Family Support Professional and parents of children with autism.   We also have four co-opted trustees who are experts in the areas of Law, SEN and Information Systems. All trustees give their time voluntarily and receive no financial benefits from the charity.

PACT for Autism has four part time paid staff and a dedicated team of volunteers working on a regular basis.   The below photos introduce our Team:
