Our dedicated volunteers are vital to the work of Headway Leicester.


Volunteers can be of help in many ways, from supporting members with activities to providing much needed 1-1 attention for members at our day service and and groups.


Do you have a couple of hours per week free to spend giving back to your community?

Victoria, Headway Leicester volunteer

I found out about Headway through my Rehabilitation Psychology course, I’ve been helping at the day centre for one year and really enjoy talking with the members and assisting them to complete their current projects. I always have a good laugh as everyone is in high spirits despite suffering from an acquired or traumatic brain injury. It is really rewarding being able to help the people here at Headway.

Frank, Headway Leicester volunteer

Volunteering at Headway has been a massive eye-opener for me. I get to meet and support people who have to cope with life-changing conditions. So many of the members have an amazing work ethic and, with the support of the staff, are to produce good quality items across a whole range be it in the workshop, dayroom, kitchen or garden.
