Volunteering - Come and join us!
Our dedicated volunteers are invaluable to Headway South Bucks. We rely heavily on all of them to work alongside our employed staff, in order to support our clients in a number of different ways.
Our volunteers are made up of a wide variety of people from those with minor head injuries themselves, to caring individuals who would like to spare some time to help others, to psychology students wanting to gain some experience before furthering their career.
Whoever you are and whatever time you have to spare, it will be hugely appreciated. Whether you are happy just making a cup of tea for someone, feel you can assist with cognitive therapy or can offer a few hours administration support we would love to hear from you! All you have to do is fill out and submit the online form on the next page.
Read about some of our Volunteers below:
When I retired I started volunteering and for two years supported young families. My daughter was studying for a psychology degree and helping at Headway to gain experience of brain injuries. She introduced me and after visiting a few times I felt it to be a very rewarding and worthwhile experience; so nearly 3 years later I'm still here.
We have enormous fun during our very varied day with time to chat with our clients about their life experiences, which are all very different, and time to play games or go for a walk.
I would recommend that anyone thinking of volunteering with a few hours to spare give our organisation some very serious thoughts as our clients greatly appreciate the time we give them.
Upon retirement I felt that I would like to give something back to the community and after an interview HSB seemed to be an organisation that I could fit into.
During my eleven years in which I have been both a trustee and a volunteer I have enjoyed the experiences that HSB has introduced me to, by way of meeting people from all walks of life and assisting people less fortunate than myself.
I attend one day a week at the Resource Centre and am able to participate in activities with our clients that ordinarily I would not take part in, and to also get great enjoyment out of interacting with our clients and putting a smile on their faces.
