Why Volunteer at Bobath Wales?

Every day we show our gratitude to the wonderful volunteers who work with us, after all they make the difference. The difference being a warm welcome in our charity shops, support in the Centre when we need it most, an extra boost with our fundraising efforts and a team of advocates to spread the word about Bobath Wales. This is just part of the amazing impact they have and for this we are truly grateful.

“What I like most about volunteering for Bobath Wales is that I am contributing something worthwhile and enjoying myself at the same time.”
