Volunteering at HIP

We are very fortunate that some of our members are also volunteers at HIP. As a result of their brain injury many members are unable to return to work and have lost confidence in the many skills they used prior to their injury. Our members are talented and inspirational and therefore offer a wide range of skills, knowledge and experience to the Charity through volunteering.

They all undertake a training programme which includes:

  • Confidence building
  • Skills for volunteering
  • HIP Policies and Procedures
  • An overview of brain injury by Dr Crawford Thomas, Consultant Neuropsychologist
  • One to one support and supervision

The advantages to this programme are two-fold. The members who undertake the volunteering training programme will learn new skills, build on existing skills, increase confidence and be inspiring to other HIP members. As a result of having volunteers at the Charity we will be able to increase our resources and they will be an invaluable source of support to all members.

What does volunteering at HIP achieve?

  • Increased skills, experience and knowledge.
  • Transferable skills to the work place and/or training setting.
  • Added resource to HIP in Charity as volunteers can take up a variety of positions at HIP — office admin, course facilitation, coordinating activities etc.
  • Prevents loneliness and isolation amongst our members
  • Increase confidence and well-being.

If you would like any more information on volunteering please do not hesitate to contact the HIP team.
