As our name suggests, we are affiliated with Headway UK.
Whilst we adhere to the same mission of Headway UK in supporting people affected by brain injury, we are a completely independent charity that has its own service delivery model and business structure.
The benefit of being local means that we can assess and understand where money is needed to best support those living with Brain Injury.
Brain injury can affect anyone. We support people with acquired brain injury, and their families and carers to regain confidence and overcome challenges by:
Providing rehabilitative support
Increasing understanding of brain injury
In 2013-14, there were 5,839 hospital admissions with an acquired brain injury-related diagnosis in the Norfolk area.
We want to empower brain injury survivors and their families. Those impacted by brain injury will be supported, encouraged and guided to imagine new possibilities for their future lives through our specialist support team.
We create an environment where people feel safe and respected, while encouraging them to make choices that will enhance their independence and quality of life.
