Summer Festival 2019

Friday, August 09, 2019

The support staff at Headway Shropshire organised another amazing Summer Festival for everyone who attends our Rehabilitation Centre.



It was great to see so many people get involved, everyone had a lot of fun with the photo booth props and there are lots more photos up in the rehabilitation centre if you are visiting.

There was a Daily Raffle, Guess the Name of the Orangutan? and How Many Sweets in the Jar?

Building Better Opportunities Project

Thursday, June 27, 2019

On Friday 28th June 2019 we saw the end of the 12 week BBO Project, we said goodbye to our last two participants at Headway Shropshire and our time with the Landau Project.



Headway Shropshire have been really pleased to be part of this project, especially as we can see the positive effect it has on those individuals taking part and the opportunities it is giving them to move forward in their lives. 

We wish to thank all those who took part in the project including participants, clients, staff and Landau.

Hats For Headway Day 2019

Friday, May 10, 2019

Hats for Headway day is a great way to raise awareness of the work Headway Shropshire does in our annual celebration.

The idea is very simple, all we ask you to do is wear a hat on 24th May to show your support.

We would encourage you to wear a hat that is crazy and bizarre but this is not compulsory, we just want you to have fun.

Ask all your colleagues, friends and family to wear a hat for the day to raise awareness and donate £2 to Headway Shropshire
