Services

Headway East London offers services to brain injury survivors, their families and carers. These include our Day Service, neurological therapies, community support work, advice, advocacy and family support. As the effects of brain injury are long-term, so is our support.

Neurological Therapy Service

In addition to providing services to our members at the Day Service, Headway East London also provides a private therapy service for people affected by brain injury living in London. This includes neurological physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological services, neuropsychology and complementary therapy.

We are currently operating a hybrid service with some therapies available face-to-face and others remotely.

Our unique inter-disciplinary approach offers neurological therapies alongside community support work, our day service and occupational projects. Therapies can be offered at our centre in East London, at someone’s home, or at another venue in the community. We offer a professional service to individuals, families, case managers, solicitors and statutory organisations.

Community Brain Injury Service

"(Before the service) I felt very depressed and very demoralised. There were times when I wanted to end my life so that I couldn’t feel anything anymore. I feel happier and more relaxed. It feels that there is a light at the end of the tunnel" - Enfield member

Headway East London has been working with Enfield Clinical Commissioing Group (CCG) since January 2017 to deliver the Enfield Brain Injury Service.

The team provides specialist therapy services for adults with a non-progressive acquired brain injury except a stroke. The values of Headway East London which acknowledge the long term and complex nature of brain injury are incorporated in our innovative approach to community rehabilitation.
