Candida is the part-time Manager for SIGNAL and responsible for keeping us ticking over.
Candida says …
I joined SIGNAL in 2005, soon after my two young children had been diagnosed with ASD. Soon I started volunteering – editing the newsletter, helping out at the summer party, at meetings and on trips. Eventually the committee decided to centralise the various roles and I became the part-time Administrator for the group and later the Manager.
I still get an enormous amount from SIGNAL as a parent – not least the friendship and support of the other members – but also really enjoy my official role, knowing that SIGNAL makes a real difference to local families affected by autism.
