Summer Festival

Monday, August 13, 2018

After the success of our Summer festival last year, the support staff in our rehabilitation centre at Headway Shropshire spent a week in August organising another festival for the clients. 


We had a daily raffle for the clients with all the lovely items that have been kindly donated or handmade.  Our mobile stall was very successful, our clients were able to buy gifts for family and friends and raised £105

All the clients got involved, dressing up for our photo booth.  A touch of glamour was added to the event , as our support staff got creative offering glitter art and glitter tattoos.

ABI Carers Meetings 2018

Carers Support Group

Dates for your diary 2018

 

Headway Shropshire has grown to such an extent in recent years. With this in mind the need for carers support, information and guidance is much greater. We at Headway Shropshire would like to welcome you to join our carers group which is held at Headway Shropshire on dates stated below.

The effects of Acquired Brain Injury are so wide, so unique and also often invisible that many carers, family members and friends find it difficult to get the support they need. What Carers have in common with each other is the need to share stories and know that people really listen and understand. Our carers group is to meet other people in the same situation, to value each other’s ideas and experiences, to have a break and to get practical information.
