Headway Essex Supporting You At All Times

Coronavirus has made life feel very different for everyone, but at Headway Essex we want to make sure that we can continue to support you throughout these very different and challenging times.

Virtual Activity Sessions

If you are an existing client who attended the Headway Centre in Colchester or Activity Sessions in our South Essex Hub, before lockdown, you will have been invited to attend virtual activity session, which include:

Fitness Groups, Managing Fatigue, Social Groups, Understanding Brain Injury, Quizzes, Carers Groups, education and Cognitive Rehabilitation.

These sessions are underpinned by regular calls from your support worker to check your general health and wellbeing and help keep you on track to achieve your recovery goals.

If you don’t want to join a virtual group, you can try a Headway Essex seated fitness class with personal trainer Matt Brinkley in your own time. You can follow Matt’s class on You Tube using this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZkW4KPyHqk&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR16Dr9YqrFYV6_ogGOh4Z6p1xOHtpZltO_YPUEosM7UpsBoc7dR9Gcrlzw
