Headway - Derby

Brain injury can be a life changing experience and people often need support after they have been discharged from hospital or rehabilitation centres. Brain injuries are hidden disabilities that can have dramatic impacts on the lives of not only the people they affect, but also their families. These injuries can be due to a stroke, an infection, or a trauma caused by a fall, a road traffic accident, assault or any other cause.

Anyone can refer and Headway’s support is not time limited. They provide day services, individual and group work, vocational support and outdoor therapies and gardening. They have a supported exercise programme from seated exercise and mindfulness through to groups in the gym.
