New project for 2022

Supported by Fosters Solicitors

Headway Norfolk & Waveney are pleased to announce that they are working on a much needed project with Fosters Solicitors who are supporting them to raise awareness of concussion and minor head injuries, improving the information and advice available in the local area.

Fosters’ Personal Injury team are proud supporters of Headway, with Partner Steve Green also a panel member for their Norfolk & Waveney and Suffolk branches.

The trial project, which will be officially launched later this year, will look to provide additional support to outpatients who have suffered a concussion. Such specialised support for concussion injury is not prevalent within the Norfolk and Waveney area, and it’s hoped that this initial trial project will go some way to help alleviate this gap in provision.

Michael Kitching, Chief Executive Officer of Headway Norfolk & Waveney explains: “People who have suffered a mild concussion often receive a varied and limited amount of information regarding aftercare and the potential of developing post-concussion syndrome.

“We are therefore grateful for the support of Fosters which has enabled us to get this trial project up and running, and very-much look forward to working with them on this project over the coming months. This will enable us to provide much-needed support to people across the Norfolk and Waveney region, distributing key information about managing brain injury and the associated physical and mental health problems.”

Fosters’ Head of Personal Injury & Group Actions, Steve Green added: “As trusted legal advisors for head injury cases, we are very proud to be supporting Headway Norfolk & Waveney and working with them on this new project, which will focus on identifying those who have suffered a concussion injury but are often unaware of its potential effects.”

We are announcing this campaign during Action For Brain Injury Week (16th to 22nd May), which this year is raising awareness and understanding of the often misunderstood symptoms of a brain injury, and for what can be for many brain injury survivors, a hidden disability.
