Supporting people with a brain injury and those who care about them

Homepage Circle Picture

Brain injury can be a life changing experience and people often need support after they have been discharged from hospital or rehabilitation centres. 

Headway Cambridgeshire is the only local organisation that provides on-going services which are designed to enable brain injured people and their families and carers to move on with the next stage of their lives.

In our two hubs in Peterborough and Fulbourn we offer a programme of activities and specialist services aimed at recovery and social rehabilitation. Working across the county of Cambridgeshire we also provide information, hospital liaison, occupational therapy, community enablement and the opportunity to participate in social events.

You are invited to learn more about the history of brain injury through the first heritage project researched and curated by people with a brain injury. By clicking on the link you can find out more about how brain injury treatment has changed across the years, how Headway Cambridgeshire began and what the challenges are of being a researcher with a brain injury.

I struggled with a lot of issues, especially how I felt my father’s personality had changed and Headway Cambridgeshire helped me a lot at that time in my life. They made me feel much less alone and I’ll always be grateful for that.
