Headway Shropshire have produced their first Calendar ready for 2017.  Each page features an amazing recipe for you to cook each month.  There is something for everyone from a warm Pumpkin Soup to Stuffed Chicken Breast or Lamb Kofte followed by Chocolate Orange Bread and Butter Pudding. 

Calendars can be purchased direct from our Headway Shropshire Office in Shrewsbury for just £5.  All money will be used to provide activities for our clients in our Rehabilitation Centre. 

You can also find the calendar in the Charity Christmas Card Shop at St Mary's Church in Shrewsbury, which opens on Friday 21st October until the start of December, the shop is open 10.15am to 4pm Monday to Saturday.  The shop will also stock a great range of Headway Shropshire Christmas Cards.  Our team will be volunteering on Monday afternoons so why not pop in and say hello.

University of Birmingham Research Project - Partner with a Brain Injury

Tuesday, October 11, 2016

LIVING WITH A PARTNER WITH A
BRAIN INJURY?

 

We are looking for people to take part in a research project about relationships following brain injury.

 


What is the research about?

How wives/husbands/partners of someone with a brain injury feel about their relationship following the injury, and how this has an impact on how they understand and manage difficult situations that may arise with their spouse/partner.

 

What will you have to do?

  • Meet with the researcher (myself) for between 45 and 75 minutes
  • Meet at a time and date suitable to you
  • Meet at a convenient and private location, such as your home or a local support/carer organisation  
  • Complete a questionnaire and answer some questions

 

Am I eligible to take part?

You can take part in this research if you answer ‘yes’ to all of the following questions:

  • Does your wife/husband/partner have a brain injury (including traumatic brain injury (head injury), stroke (including haemorrhagic strokes), brain tumours, brain infections (e.g. encephalitis) and anoxic brain injury (i.e. brain has been starved of oxygen such as by drowning))
  • Did you live together before the brain injury?
  • Are you still living together?
  • Were you in a relationship for at least 5 years prior to the brain injury?
  • Did your wife’s/husband’s/partner’s brain injury happen at least 9 months ago?
  • Did your wife’s/husband’s/partner’s brain injury happen less than 10 years ago?

 

I am interested, what do I do next?
