Meet amazing people, boost your skills, and build your confidence - all whilst helping others.

Whether you are looking to learn new skills on the route into employment, want to get involved with your community or fancy meeting some new people, volunteering at The Brain Charity is for you.

Without our team of dedicated volunteers we would not be able to provide the service we do. Our volunteers help out with every single aspect of our work, and we are so grateful for their help!

Volunteering opportunities at The Brain Charity include:

  • Activity Assistant
  • Activity Leader
  • Administration Assistant
  • Café Assistant
  • Cleaning Assistant
  • Community Advocate
  • Community Fundraiser
  • Employment Assistant
  • Fundraiser
  • Kitchen Assistant
  • Library Assistant
  • Marketing Assistant
  • Receptionist
  • Volunteer Representative
  • Welfare & Benefits Assistant
  • Writer


If you could spare a few hours a week for one of these roles, we would love to hear from you.

If you would like to volunteer with us, but don't have the time to make a regular weekly commitment, we'd still be happy to hear from you, even if you can only spare a few hours for special events two or three times per year.

The nature of the work at the centre requires a mature attitude, but no minimum/maximum age limit is set.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community. No formal qualifications are required.
