An Occupational Therapist (OT) works with people to enable them to live as independently as possible, and to engage in occupations/activities that promote their health and well-being.
Volunteering can be a good way to gain experience if you are thinking of becoming an OT or working in the health field.
As a volunteer you will be able to:
- Develop knowledge of brain injury and how it impacts upon an individual’s daily functioning.
- Develop skills that improve communication with an individual with cognitive impairments, as well as developing the ability to support a brain injured individual to engage in meaningful activities.
You will also receive training, and on-going support from an Occupational Therapist.
We recommend a minimum of four hours a week. You will need to be a car driver and have access to a car.
If you are interested in applying to be a volunteer, please make contact with Angela Bentley (OT)
