Activities Group Volunteer

Headway Salisbury and South Wiltshire hopes to ensure that when a person’s life is turned upside down by brain injury, they get the help and support they need and deserve and are able to live as independent a life as possible.

We aim to promote understanding and awareness of all aspects of brain injury; and to provide information, support and services to people with a brain injury, their family and friends, as well as assistance in accessing and signposting other services.

We are looking for someone to support us with the following tasks:

  • Assisting with completing initial paperwork and outcome assessment with service users
  • Assisting with outcome assessment with carers (when required)
  • Supporting the Activities Co-ordinator in the development and delivery of activities to the group
  • Supporting individuals one to one, within the group setting, to complete group and individual tasks
  • Helping the Activities Co-ordinator set up and tidy the room
  • Supervising service users making refreshments
  • Supporting service users during the lunch period (service users bring their own packed lunch)
