We are particularly interested in current or retired teachers, occupational therapists and physiotherapists. We also need experienced admin support volunteers.
So if you have a few hours spare and want to help contribute to our innovative work please get in touch for an informal chat.
All volunteers will receive an in-depth induction, training appropriate to their role and ongoing support and development to ensure that their volunteering is a positive experience.
If you are interested in continuing to use your knowledge, skills and experience, want to give something back to the community or even to increase your employability prospects please email Ann at firstname.lastname@example.org

"Our 10 year study proves that family-led home-based neuro-rehab interventions deliver the best outcomes for children and young people"
"Positive and coordinated neuro-rehab interventions for children and young people is proven to bring health improvements; improve independence; reduces the need for sheltered living; decreases vulnerability; decreases drop-out rates in schools; decreases youth offending"
"Different 'experts' involved in paediatric neuro-rehabilitation come from different organisational cultures which causes conflict and has a negative effect on the outcomes for the child."
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"When different organisations assess different aspects of a child's neuro-rehabilitation needs, everyone looks at things from a different perspective and have conflicting priorities"
"There are problems with getting people into neuro-rehab. Those most in need are often those most excluded due to a lack of socio-economic resources."
"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
"Intensive and individualized approaches work. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't. You have to make it relevant to the child."
"Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."
