Headway Cambridgeshire has gone through a lot of changes recently but we are still here. No matter where we are based, we are Headway. Our hub service is now at Chesterton Methodist Church and we'd like to say thank you to those who have helped us settle in and feel very welcome, especially Deacon Ian Murray.
Things are continuing as normal; we still do exercise group, we work on our confidence and skills through sessions like gardening and also just by socialising and having fun! Of course we are still working really hard on our National Lottery Heritage fund project - Impact! Brain Injuries and WW1 with various other groups. There are some exciting outcomes coming soon so watch out for more information in the next blog! We were sorry to say goodbye to some people involved in the project a few months ago and want to say a special thank you to Clare Hobbs for all her hard work on Impact!
Although the hub service now only runs twice a week, remember it is quality not quantity. We are still the same people who enjoy our lives with a brain injury. We show that we can achieve anything and nothing can stop us.
I myself have made some very good friends since I first came to Headway Cambridgeshire and I am so glad I did. It has been a great help for me and others in regaining our independence. We are all fighters!
If any Headway Cambridgeshire members would like to ask me anything or talk about the changes, please do and I will try to put your mind at ease.
“ The Hospital Brain Injury Co-ordinator became someone who absolutely understood how I felt, I didn’t need to explain. I could talk about my fears and worries. She was such a great support through the difficult days, but could also celebrate the small step successes, which was important to me. ”
