Headway Shropshire

Improving life after brain injury

About Us

We are a registered charity, providing care, support and rehabilitation to people with acquired brain injuries within Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and the surrounding areas.

 

Our primary goal is to give people their lives back, offering them encouragement, rehabilitation and support in the hope that we can eventually help them to return to living independently or enable them to participate in life as fully as possible, with the least amount of possible assistance. We also provide support, advice and information to carer’s, families, friends and colleagues of people with a brain injury, and additionally we help, advise and support, health and social care professionals who may be supporting someone with a brain injury.

 

We also run carers support groups as we know firsthand how difficult it is to be a carer; taking the time to look after yourself when you care for someone is often forgotten, we also provide support for the carers loved one whilst the group is running to enable them to attend.

 

Over the years we have evolved from a small informal ‘drop in’ support group, based in the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, to a charity that supports adults with an acquired brain injury, 5 days a week on site, 7 days a week in their own homes and we have recently expanded into offering 24 hour support for those who need a high level of care and support.
