Jenny says “I was in and out of hospital for two years trying to recover from two brain haemorrhages and a stroke, before considering facing life in the community again. I felt lost and bewildered and very uncertain as to
“I didn’t think anything was wrong with me.
I couldn’t walk, I couldn’t talk, I wasn’t myself. I
couldn’t concentrate. I was in leg splints, I had to learn to walk again. And yet the biggest hurdle I overcame was accepting my brain injury… And that didn’t
happen until I received support from Headway.
Looking back at it I do not know how I could not
see how different things were…” -

Our service is run by a friendly and dedicated group of staff, volunteers and students. We support people to learn new skills and relearn skills they may have lost since having acquired their brain injury. We are service user led and we aim to integrate people into the community as much as possible in the activities we run.
