Brain injury can happen to anyone, at any time and can devastate the lives of those affected – changing their personality, their behaviour and their relationships with those closest to them. Many people we see have lost their jobs, their homes and their self respect.
Headway East London supports people to put their lives back together, campaigns to improve services and raises awareness of brain injury in the wider community.
We provide vital services for people living with brain injuries including physio and neurological therapies, counselling and occupational therapies, everything people need to rebuild their lives.
BUT this comes at a cost, our day services alone cost in the region of £5,000 a week to run. Help us to keep the doors open and the lights on throughout 2021
“Headway has helped me communicate my story to other brain injured people, my family and friends, medical people and the wider world. People with a brain injury need to have their say because we all have something important to contribute on the question of what it means to be human.”
