Mentor and Grow





Are you autistic or have lived experience of autism?

Do you feel you ready to support others to meet their goals and aspirations? Are you a good listener, understanding, empowering, organised and willing to learn new skills? Then we want to hear from you.

Mentor and Grow is a project where the autistic community and their allies support autistic people, through volunteering. There are different ways to get involved for example volunteers can:

  • work with individuals to help set and achieve personal goals.
  • provide peer support to help people develop a positive autistic identity.
  • provide information, guidance and signposting.

What is involved?
Full training, support and supervision is provided.  For more information about how to get involved, please contact Meaghan, Dial’s Volunteering and Learning Manager on 01244 345 655 or email
