Improving life after brain injury
Our latest news and events
Headway Shropshire has been approached by Birmingham University to ask if we could make you aware of a research project that they are presently undertaking.
They are developing a questionnaire about the spouse’s/partner’s experience of what happens to relationships after brain injury (e.g. traumatic brain injury, stroke, brain tumour). The purpose of taking part and completing the questionnaire, is that it can be used to study more effectively what happens to relationships after brain injury.
We have agreed to help the university by making those of you who fit the criteria aware of this research, thereby allowing you the opportunity to take part in it, if you wish.
To be able to take part you need to answer ‘yes’ to the following questions:
· Are you a husband, wife or partner of someone who has suffered a traumatic brain injury in the last 10 years?
· Did your husband, wife or partner have a stay in hospital for at least a week because of the brain injury?
· Did you live with your husband, wife or partner for at least 1 year before their injury?
· Are you still living with your husband, wife or partner?
· Are you at least 18 years of age?
· Are you able to fill in a questionnaires written in English?
If you fit the criteria and would like to take part in the survey or would like more information about the research, then please contact:
who are conducting the research.
Natasha will also be attending the next carers group meeting on the 15th September 2016 6.00pm – 7.30pm to talk and explain more about the research. Any carer is welcomed to attend this meeting. If you are interested in coming please let Jamie Jordon-Bailey know by telephoning 01743 365565 or emailing email@example.com.
Headway Shropshire would like to thank the volunteers from Interserve Telford that helped to complete our garden ready for our Summer Fair. The whole team worked really hard to paint the fences, flower beds, bird feeder and sun dial. Due to the recent weather being perfect for weeds our newly planted vegetable and herb beds needed some care and attention. The bank adjacent to the path has now been laid with new turf and some climbers have been planted at the top which will cover the wire fence over time. Our clients were also treated to a wonderful selection of sandwich and cakes which was kindly provided by the team.
Please come and join Headway Shropshire for our annual Summer Fair, everyone is welcome.
At headway Shropshire we are very fortunate to have some amazing volunteers who dedicate their time and skills to our charity every week throughout the year. This week is Volunteers Week 1-12 June and as a thank you we have taken our volunteers out to lunch this afternoon.
The Headway Shropshire garden has had a make over with help from a team of volunteers from BT and Nikki from Top Notch Gardens. A bank of earth has been removed to widen the pathway to the top of the garden, all fences and rails have been painted, a fence has been built at back of garden, weeding of paved areas and planting of herbs, vegetable and trees. The garden now looks amazing and can be enjoyed by the clients at the centre throughout the year.
We are very grateful to all the local businesses who donated all the item to enable the project to go ahead.
