Leave a Legacy with Headway


Brain injury can change lives in an instant for both the survivor and their families. It can mean losing the life you once led and the person you once were as it affects every aspect – walking, talking, thinking and feeling.

Headway – the brain injury association works to improve life after brain injury by providing care and support as well as practical rehabilitation and social re-integration programmes.

  • Provided 6,604 distressed survivors/carers with a lifeline via our helpline
  • Supported 214 families in the immediate aftermath of brain injury via our acute trauma nurses
  • Issued £46,780 from our “Headway Emergency Fund” to provide practical help for the immediate costs incurred by families of survivors
  • Supplied helpful and reassuring information to 498,429 visitors to our website and supplied 110,428 families with free, downloadable factsheets or our BMA- accredited booklets
  • Enabled 1,135 families to come to terms with the personality and lifestyle changes of a brain injury through our training
