Headway Essex

Providing Brain Injury Care & Support

About Headway Essex

Day Care Services

The Headway Centre in Colchester provides rehabilitative care to survivors of brain injury.  The centre is open five days a week.


Each day is structured differently in order to meet specific needs and levels of ability of clients who will attend once or twice a week depending on their needs.


People with brain injury attending the centre are helped with issues including improving personal health and self-care, increasing their understanding of how their brain injury has affected them, improving self-esteem and confidence, increasing independence and reducing social isolation.


Community Support Service

The Headway Community Support Service provides information, advice and support to people living with acquired brain injury and those who care for them.


The service provides home and hospital visits, telephone advice and support, literature, support group meetings, information days, carers seminars and a schools education programme to raise awareness of brain injury and how to prevent head injuries.



Headway Essex is an independently registered charity and relies on fundraising to sustain its services.


Please support Headway Essex if you are able.
