Current opportunity

Autism Rocks want to see Fife as a place where people with Autism and their families, are accepted as valued members of the community. Their mission is to promote and provide understanding, acceptance, inclusion, education and support. Their centre in Buckhaven is open Wednesday and Thursday for drop-in sessions from 10am to 1pm, with Friday evenings from 6-8pm for teen/adult sessions and Saturdays for family days from 10.00am- 1.00pm. Within these sessions there are many different activities on offer for service users and their families, including sensory integration, arts and crafts, music therapy, lego therapy. They have a sensory garden that they maintain together giving families the opportunity to learn some new skills. Volunteers are needed to help at any of these times & days. There will always be a Trustee present, and you will help by speaking to family members or service users who might want a chat as well as helping to run/tidy up after the various groups or help to maintain the garden.
