Volunteer | Headway Black Country

Volunteers are vital to the work of Headway Black Country. We welcome and value the contribution and dedication of our volunteers.

Why volunteer?

Volunteers can be of help in many ways, from making the drinks to providing the much needed 1 to 1 attention for clients, from supporting outings to maintaining our building, to supporting carer groups to running fund raising events or campaigns.

You’ll be introduced to all kinds of people with a wide variety of backgrounds and stories to tell. You’ll discover new talents that you didn’t even know you had! But best of all you’ll make new friends.

All volunteers are supervised and are part of the Headway Black Country Team.

As you will be working with vulnerable adults, you must provide two references. We also require DBS checks at the appropriate level for all our volunteers.

We usually require a minimum commitment to six months of volunteering of at least one half day per week.

Linda shares her story:

Hi my name is Linda and I am a support worker at Headway Black Country. Prior to this I volunteered for 7 years.

It was a pleasure to do this at this CharityLinda

People who have an Acquired Brain Injury can come to our centre, to take part in activities, and meet other people who are going through similar experiences.

In that time I witnessed such great improvement in confidence, communication, relearning life skills & learning new skills. It was a pleasure to witness these changes in our Clients.

I would certainly recommend volunteering at this amazing Charity.
