Headway Leicester provides support and services to people with an acquired or traumatic brain injury living in Leicestershire, Leicester or Rutland. We provide Outreach services and a city based Day service 5 days a week. Volunteers, supported by staff, will encourage, assist and support members who have a brain injury in their activity. These activities can include arts & crafts (card making, drawing, beadwork, jewellery, pottery, dough, batik), cookery, computers (internet, paintshop, card design, poetry, training, games), education (Maths, English, I.T.), gardening (vegetables, flowers, maintenance, planting), woodwork (carpentry, pyrography, turning, picture frames), games (board games, memory games, chess, dominoes, jigsaws) and social & recreational events & outings. People attending Headway may have a range of disabilities and/or sensory needs. The garden volunteer will be involved in the maintenance of the gardens and greenhouse at Headway. Where possible, the volunteer will also engage with members, involving them in gardening activities. For this role, the individual must be committed and consistent in their attendance, be able to use their initiative and also be able to work alone.
