What we do

Brain injury can affect anybody, at any time. We recognise the far reaching practical and emotional impact that living with brain injury can have on the individual and their family, friends and carers.

Through the provision of tailor made packages of assessment and support we are able to offer specialist services to suit your needs and budget.

We pride ourselves on our flexible, person centred approach aimed at promoting independence and empowering the individual.

We are here to help whatever stage of the journey you are on and for as long as you need us.

 

Your route to support

Brain Injury Co-ordinators

If you have a brain injury or support someone who does, regardless of when this occurred, the Brain Injury Co-ordinators are your first point of contact for support and information. They will talk through your needs and wishes and provide you with a range of options, including access to specialist services from Headway to enable you to continue your journey.

Discharged from hospital

If you are being discharged from hospital or a rehabilitation facility we can provide support to help you with this transition. A Community Brain Injury Co-ordinator can visit you before and after discharge and provide specialist guidance focused on this early stage.

Thank you for the support and advice that you have been giving my husband. This has in turn taken a lot of pressure off me and has helped me through his bad days and angry spells.
