You will be working with our members to help improve their cognitive skills and at the same time have fun through playing games, cards, bingo etc. You could be asked to help out with specific groups e.g. quizzes, jewellery making, play pool, board games etc., or assist our less outgoing members to become more integrated with the others. You will actively contribute to the maintenance of a professional & welcoming environment at EHG. This is a rewarding and satisfying role.
About Edinburgh Headway Group
Brain injury affects an estimated 1million people in the UK and can change everything in a matter of seconds. Those affected can be left with a range of physical, cognitive and emotional difficulties which can be lifelong. Edinburgh Headway Group is a specialist organisation which supports the longer term needs of adults with acquired brain injuries in Edinburgh and the Lothians. We provide a range of services, at Headway House and within the community, which are specifically tailored to meet the individual needs of members and their carers with a focus on improving everyday life. The Group is staffed by a small number of staff and an army of volunteers.
You will be flexible, friendly, willing to be part of a team and enjoy working in an environment with ABI members.
