“I have really enjoyed volunteering at Headway West Sussex. It has been a real eye opener into the hard work that goes on behind a charity as well as into my chosen field of Neuropsychology. The trustees at Headway have been very supportive and my experience has been really worthwhile, I would recommend it to any graduate or undergraduate as a great way to gain experience.” Pryia Bhawaneedin
