Headways

Our new website will be up and running in the new year in the mean time here is a little about ourselves…

 

Headway Worcestershire is a local and independent charity supporting people affected by acquired brain injury across Worcestershire supporting life after brain injury. We provide support, services and information to brain injury survivors, their families and carers, as well as to professionals in the health and legal fields.

Brain injury can challenge every aspect of your life – walking, talking, thinking and feeling – and the losses can be severe and permanent. It can mean losing both the life you once lived and the person you once were.

What we do

Brain Injury affects different people in different ways. We recognise that each person is unique and tailor our support to meet their needs and circumstances. Our aim is to help people achieve their goals and enjoy a quality of life consistent with their desires and interests. We also support families and carers affected by brain injury. 

 

What we believe

Every person with a brain injury should have the opportunity to live a purposeful happy life, able to make choices and feel valued. Some of the effects of brain injury can be misunderstood and stigmatised by society we are committed to challenging prejudice and injustice and promoting a better understanding of the impact of brain injury.

People are supported on a one to one basis in their own homes or in the wider community. Working towards agreed goals and objectives, each outreach worker will engage service users in practical, meaningful and enjoyable activities which help to achieve increased independence and confidence.
