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.

"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"We are medical practitioners. The real experts are the parents. Over the last 35 years they have taught me everything I know"
"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"
"Strength-based family intervention after pediatric ABI is essential. Parents need to be equipped with the skills to cope and advocate for the child."
"We would like to see earlier identification and support for children with brain injuries to help them succeed in school."
"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"
"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."
"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"
"Restoration of anatomical functions and relationships must be done within 2 months of brain injury"
"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"
