About The Brain Changer Arts Project

The brain is a wonderful and mysterious thing: constantly in motion, living, growing and reconfiguring itself over and over again until we are well into our mid-twenties and even our thirties. At The Brain Charity, we believe early intervention for children and young people with neurological conditions is vital and that every child should have the support they need to reach their full potential. Because The Brain Charity is a medium-sized charity, we have the freedom to innovate, and our unique position, bridging both health and social care, means we are perfectly placed to take new ideas to the next level.

Through the receipt of funding from BBC Children in Need, The Brain Changer Arts Project has been merging the skills of professional dancers and visual artists to work alongside those working in the fields of both neuro-physiotherapy and neuro-occupational therapy to improve the lives of children and young people with neurological conditions. The project offers regular dance and craft-based classes in which the moves, routines and exercises are based on wide-ranging and high impact physiotherapy and occupational therapy techniques designed specifically to improve balance, dexterity and coordination. We are seeking a unique individual who has a strong background in either social care, health or the arts to oversee the operational delivery of this project.

 

We are an award-winning charity and have recently received The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service, the highest accolade given by the Crown to Third Sector organisations.

If you are passionate about our cause and would like to become part of a vibrant and diverse team, we would love to hear from you.
