Headway Essex

Providing Brain Injury Care & Support

2018 Support Groups

The Headway Support Groups are there for people living with brain injury, their carers and professionals involved with acquired brain injury.

 

“It is fantastic to be able to talk and listen to others and learn.  I was in a completely bereaved state – you do not get used to it, but with Headway’s help you adjust”

 

Headway has support groups across the county of Essex.  These groups are mostly in the evening and are well supported.  People come to the support groups for many reasons, some to chat to others in a similar situation as themselves, to gain information and advice and others to listen to the varied talks which are given both from individuals with brain injury or organisations and professionals all working in the field of acquired brain injury.

 

The people who attend the support groups are at different levels of rehabilitation and ability.

 

Our Support groups are a place to feel comfortable, they are very welcoming and the people who come are always happy to see new visitors.  Many friendships are built within each of our support groups.

 

If you wish to attend a Headway Support Group, please contact the Community Support Team on 01206 768797 or email communitysupport@headwayessex.org.uk
