Volunteers enhance the work undertaken by our charity, helping us to achieve better outcomes for the children, young people and their families that we aim to help.
Our volunteers receive an indepth induction, training appropriate to their role and ongoing support and development to ensure their volunteering is a positive experience.
Make a difference – every person counts!
We currently have opportunities at our office base in Middlesbrough and are hapy to talk over what this may involve.

"We need to harness the power of brain plasticity for treating children and young people with brain injury. Stressful experiences alter brain development of a child, especially at the key ages of 0-3 and at ages 10-16"
"Families and professionals spend time focusing on the negative aspects of ABI. Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."
"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
"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"
"Restoration of anatomical functions and relationships must be done within 2 months of brain injury"
"NHS clinicians struggle with what intervention to prioritise in paediatric neuro-rehabilitation due to limited clinical time and the complexity of needs. Children, clinicians, parents and schools all have different neuro-rehabilitation priorities"
"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"
"There are problems with getting people into neuro-rehab centres. Those most in need are often those most excluded due to a lack of socio-economic resources."
"We are medical practitioners. The real experts are the parents. Over the last 35 years they have taught me everything I know"
"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"
