We have various volunteering opportunities for individuals with an interest in supporting the work of our charity.

Most of these involve working directly in support those affected by brain injury or stroke.

Please view other areas of this site to learn more about how people are affected by brain injury or stroke.

Volunteers come from all walks of life and bring with them a wide range of experiences and skills. We look for real commitment to and interest in what we do. The ability to be caring, non-judgemental and patient is also important.

In return for volunteering, we provide regular supervision, training and travel expenses to volunteers. As this is work with vulnerable adults, we will arrange for an enhanced DBS check to be undertaken alongside references from people who know you.
