Precious time spent on helping with activities for those with brain injury, with activities such as art and crafts, hobbies, and computer skills. This is a rewarding, fun and sometimes challenging role, but support from the senior support worker and the support worker team is always on hand, the rewards of this role certainly out way and difficulties.

There are opportunities to help with fundraising also. As a charity we rely heavily on the generosity of the community and business and throughout the year run a number of fundraising activities being part of the team that organise and run these activities is an opportunity to share and learn new skills and let your creative side take the lead.
