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

Headway East London provides neurological physiotherapy, occupational therapy, psychological services, neuropsychology and complementary therapy for people affected by brain injury living in London.

Each of our therapists has a minimum of 10 years’ experience working with people affected by brain injury as well as post graduate training.

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.
