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.

Community Support Work

We have an experienced team of Support Workers specialising in supporting brain injury survivors in their own homes and local communities. Since March 2020, we have been operating a hybrid offering: seeing members face-to-face when advised, whilst providing remote services when this is not possible.

The service can be offered in conjunction with our other services or independently, and our Support Workers have access to an onsite team of experienced staff and therapists.

Community support we offer

Our team develop support plans to enable the people we work with to live their life in the way they want to and achieve their goals. Some of these can include:

  • A strong focus on social activities, education or work
  • Managing complex activities at home like managing finances, budgeting and paperwork

Our Support Workers work with individuals to develop and maintain a daily and weekly structure which promotes well-being. We take great care to work collaboratively with someone's family and friends, Case Managers and other professionals involved in rehabilitation.
