Services Update

18th April, 2020

Following our recent news regarding the temporary suspension of our in-person groups, we are happy to share with you our new programme of virtual services.

In order to continue to support clients to meet their individual goals, our specialist team of rehabilitation workers, co-coordinators and personal trainers are delivering adapted sessions via telephone and video call.

We are pleased to be able to offer the comprehensive package of support below:

Virtual  Hub - Group activity programme including sessions such as creative arts, physical exercise, games, cognitive and life skills (includes postal activity packs).

Independence Service - 1:1 goal led rehabilitation and support.

Independence Outdoors - Woodwork and practical projects to do at home, cognitive and emotional support, both 1:1 and in groups.

Personal Training  - Individually tailored exercise sessions with a qualified instructor to help improve cardiovascular stamina, muscular strength, balance and coordination.

Community Connections  - 1:1 support to get into education, training or work.

Virtual Horticulture - Peer support, gardening guidance and project work to try at home.

Carer Support Groups - Online support group for those who care for loved ones with a brain injury.

Community Brain Injury Co-ordinators - Information, advice and support, including signposting and benefits support for clients and families, including those at Addenbrooke’s hospital.

We know that people with a brain injury and their families across Cambridgeshire need us now more than ever. We hope that over the coming weeks, these services help our clients stay as connected, active and well as possible.

Please get in touch with us if you, or someone you know, would like to access any of the above services. Our phone line is open as normal so you can continue to contact us on 01223 576550 with any enquiries and to access over the phone information, advice and support. You can also keep in touch with us on Facebook, InstagramTwitter and via email at info@headway-cambs.org.uk

We would like to reiterate our thanks to our staff, client, carers, volunteers and supporters for their dedication, commitment and understanding during this time. Together we make a difference to those living with brain injury and their families.

We are here if you need us.

The Headway Cambridgeshire Team

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.
