Make a real difference to people's lives

Make your time count

Volunteering with Headway Sussex and becoming a part of our team can make a real difference to the lives of people living with an acquired brain injury. Our wonderful volunteers help to make this a happy and stimulating environment. We particularly value volunteers who have an understanding of brain injury.

Get Involved

If you’d like to support us and make a difference, why not make a donation, volunteer, sponsor an event or even organise your own? We can’t do what we do without community support. We always need skilled volunteers and welcome anyone keen to fundraise for Headway Sussex.

Why Volunteer with Headway?

Just a little of your time can make a big difference to the level and range of support we can give to people affected by brain injury and their families. At the same time volunteering is often very rewarding and can be valuable experience and help to build confidence in the workplace.

We aim to ensure volunteering with Headway is enjoyable for all. The time you give will really help the people across Sussex communities who need support and understanding.

There are so many ways you can help Headway. We can help you find right opportunity to suit your interests and own experience and skills.

Whether you are able to offer us a few regular hours or occasional support with our wellbeing activities, support groups or fundraising, we would love to hear from you.
