Brain Changer Arts Project
The brain is a wonderful and mysterious thing: constantly in motion, living, growing and re-configuring itself over and over again until we are well into our mid 20s and even our 30s.
At The Brain Charity, we believe that early intervention for children and young people with neurological conditions is vital and that every child should have the support they need to reach their full potential.
Because The Brain Charity is a medium-sized charity, we have the freedom to innovate, and because of our unique position, bridging both health and social care, we are perfectly placed to take new ideas to the next level. Through the receipt of funding from BBC Children in Need, the Brain Changer Arts Project will utilise the skills of professional dancers and visual artists to work alongside those working in the fields of both neuro-physiotherapy and neuro-occupational therapy to improve the lives of children and young people with neurological conditions.
The Brain Charity will deliver regular dance and craft-based classes in which the moves, routines and exercises are based on wide-ranging and high impact physiotherapy and occupational therapy techniques designed specifically to improve balance, dexterity and coordination.
We are seeking a unique individual who has a strong background in either social care, health or the arts to oversee the operational delivery of this project. If you are passionate about our cause and would like to become part of a vibrant and growing team we would love to hear from you.
Background to The Brain Charity
The Brain Charity offers emotional support, practical help and social activities to anyone with a neurological condition and to their family, friends and carers.
There are hundreds of different neurological conditions including stroke, Parkinson’s disease, brain tumour, Alzheimer’s disease and many rarer conditions.
We are an award-winning charity and have recently received The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest accolade given by the Crown to Third Sector organisations.
