Improving life after brain injury
Our latest news and events
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.

Thank you to every one who attended our Car Boot Sale at Headway Shropshire on Sunday 3rd April. The sun was shining and it was great to see so many people supporting the charity. All the money raised will go towards providing activities for our clients in our rehabilitation Centre.
Carers Support Group
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 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 carer group is to meet other people in the same situation, to value each others ideas and experiences, to have a break and to get practical information.
A recent donation enabled us to organise a Pamper evening for members of our carers group. They had a wonderful evening where they were treated to facials and head massage and the opportunity to have their hair styled and nails painted.
