Helping Headway during Covid-19
Like so many charities right now, suspending some of our services and our public outreach will have significant financial repercussions for us. We've outlined a couple of little ways you can help us in the coming weeks.....
Whilst Headway East London has sadly had to close the doors to our day centre, we're working very hard to ensure of our members stay connected. Being part of a vulnerable community means that social distancing comes with additional challenges, as people still need care and support from specialist services like ours.
We're facing financial difficulty, but we still have lots of work to do and we WILL carry on. This is where you could help.
We've identified three small ways you can help Headway East London reaches as many brain injury survivors and their families:
DONATE YOUR COMMUTE
Most Londoners and beyond will now be working from home for the next few weeks (at least!). Our Community Support staff will still be travelling across the city to support our members (in the safest way possible). Would you consider donating one day of your usual train/tube/bus fare to Headway?
Text COMMUTE to 70085 to donate £5 (if you want to opt-out of further news from us text COMMUTENOINFO to the same number)
You can also donate via our website.
BUY A HEADWAY EATS VOUCHER
We might not be able to run any public events at the moment, but they're one of our favourite things: seeing members share their skills and talents with the community! Headway Eats is a perfect example where £20 buys you a 3-course meal cooked by us. Buy a voucher to redeem against our future dates & let's all celebrate being together again!
BECOME A FRIEND
An oldie but a goodie! We know lots of people are having to be careful with money right now, and might not be able to commit to supporting Headway long-term, but if you can then now would be a crucial time for us. You can pledge to donate any amount a month and receive lots of stories and benefits!
Text HELFRIENDS 3 (or your chosen amount) to 70085 to donate £3 (if you want to opt-out of further news from us text HELFRIENDSNOINFO 3 (or your chosen amount) to the same number)
