Students making a difference for brain injury survivors in Devon

To mark National Student Volunteering Week, we’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the local University and college students who generously give up their time to help Headway Devon to improve life after brain injury.

We are very fortunate to have a strong body of enthusiastic and hard-working student volunteers, without whom our day centres could not function in the way that they do.

Our volunteers come to us from several local schools, colleges and Universities, including Exeter and Plymouth University, Exeter College, and the Peninsula Medical School, and study a wide range of subjects from social care and medicine to psychology and business.

Volunteers are a vital part of the team at our centres, bringing new skills and providing invaluable extra support for our clients. Our volunteers go above and beyond the call of duty and are always on hand to run activities, lend a listening ear to clients and help to ensure the smooth day-to-day running of the centre.

At Headway Devon, we believe that our time is one of the most valuable things that we can give to other people, so we are very grateful to these students who, despite their studies and other responsibilities, give their time so freely to local brain injury survivors.
