The charity also lobbies for better support and resources to be made available to people affected by brain injury and works to raise awareness of brain injury and the devastating effects it can have.

Local Support

In addition to the services shown above, a network of 125 Headway groups and branches across the UK and Channel Islands provides a wide range of services including rehabilitation programmes, carer support, social re-integration, community outreach and respite care to survivors and families in their own communities.


Headway’s local groups and branches work hard to raise funds at a local level to continue to provide and develop the services they offer.
