If you are a member of the Co-op you can now support Headway Cambridgeshire every time you shop! Simply nominate us as your chosen charity at https://membership.coop.co.uk/causes/25799 and then every time you spend using your co-op card they will make a donation to us.
The Co-op Local Community Fund supports projects that make a difference to local communities and the money we raise will help to fund out our horticulture therapy which we provide this through a range of projects, workshops, courses and community gardens.
Clients with different types of brain injuries work together in our horticulture sessions, developing team working skills and engaging with the local community as they design gardens, plan maintenance activities and problem solve. We also work with local partners to increase accessibility to community gardens and outdoor projects. This creates opportunities, raises awareness about brain injury and increases community cohesion so the money received from the support of Co-op members makes a big difference.
“ 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. ”
