Headway - The Brain Injury Association

Headway is the UK-wide charity that works to improve life after brain injury by providing vital support and information.

A network of Headway groups and branches across the UK and Channel Islands provide a wide range of services. We have been involved with many of these branches and have seen first hand the incredible work they do and support they provide. Several of our lawyers are Trustees at Headway branches and play an active role in the delivery of services within their community.

The charity also lobbies for better support and resources to be made available to people affected by brain injury and works to raise awareness of brain injury and the devastating effects it can have.

Headway’s network of groups and branches provide a wide range of services including rehabilitation programmes, carer support, social re-integration, community outreach and respite care to survivors and families in their own communities.

Headway’s local groups and branches work hard to raise funds at a local level to continue to provide and develop the services they offer.
