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.

"Healthy teens are better at identifying strategies to deal with barriers. KIDS WITH ABI'S CAN'T!"
"Parent-supported interventions following pediatric ABI bring reductions to the cost to society"
"We would like to see earlier identification and support for children with brain injuries to help them succeed in school."
"Our 10 year study proves that family-led home-based neuro-rehab interventions deliver the best outcomes for children and young people"
"Children and young people have poor social competence post brain injury due to reduced cognition, executive functions, and emotional control. As a result they are twice as likely to have mental health issues in the future"
"When different organisations assess different aspects of a child's neuro-rehabilitation needs, everyone looks at things from a different perspective and highlight needs and conflicting priorities"
"Brain development is complex and prolonged. Brain plasticity is influenced by a range of factors. Plasticity provides a base for neuro-rehab therapies and treatment"
"Positive and coordinated neuro-rehab interventions for children and young people is prove to bring health improvements; improve independence; a decline in the need for sheltered living; decreases vulnerability; decreases drop-out rates in schools; decreases youth offending"
"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"
"Often families don't have the financial capability to access services. We need to rethink how we delivery neuro-rehab services to children and young people"
