Supporting people affected by acquired brain injury across Worcestershire
Headway Worcestershire is a local and independent charity supporting people affected by acquired brain injury across Worcestershire. We offer specialist support, information and services to brain injury survivors, their families and carers, as well as to professionals in the health and legal fields.
Our vision is to recognise that every 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. Building a community where people with a brain injury are valued respected and able to live a fulfilling life, while campaigning for greater public awareness and a better understanding of the impact of brain injury.

Personal experiences of life after brain injury
Headway Worcestershire welcomes interest from caring, understanding people who would like to help survivors of brain injuries to regain their confidence and skills at one of our centres. There are lots of volunteer opportunities available.
Headway operates a shop at 6 St Swithin’s Street, Worcester WR1 2PY. If you’re having trouble carrying the donations into town you can arrange to drop them off at The Mill, Gregory’s Mill Street, Worcester WR3 8BA Tel.01905 729 729.
Our Friendly Wellbeing Centres are run in Worcester, Kidderminster, Bromsgrove by our dedicated team of staff and volunteers.
We need to raise around £100,000 each year to maintain our services, expand existing provision and pilot new initiatives. Headway Worcestershire could not operate without the generous support of our fundraisers, donors and volunteers, to whom we are so grateful.
