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

"With support parents cope better so the child has a better recovery"
"Too often children and young people with ABI are discharged from hospital without specialist brain support that they and their families need to overcome lifelong challenges"
"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."
"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."
"We need to harness the power of brain plasticity for treating children and young people with brain injury, especially at the key ages of 0-3 and at ages 10-16"
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"When someone has a brain injury, early access to local, specialist rehabilitation is crucial to ensure the maximum recovery and make significant savings to the state in health costs"
