As an Essex-wide brain injury charity, we have two hubs offering day services for adults living with acquired brain injury - The Headway Centres located in Colchester, North Essex and Benfleet, South Essex.

Both our hubs provide practical activities and services to help people regain lost skills and learn how to cope and adjust.

Our carers and support staff in both localities have lots of experience in supporting people living with brain injury and provide structured support plans to help you with everyday living.

One of the many benefits in attending our day service hubs is that you have a chance to meet other people also living with brain injury. We’ve found that this helps lessen isolation and improves mental health and overall well-being.

Our support team will help you understand your brain injury; how it affects you and your family and what tools you could use to help you make adjustments in your life. Our aim is to support you in achieving your own goals.

To explore the day service in your local area, please visit either our North Essex or South Essex Day Services pages.

Please note that if you have not been to one of our day service hubs before, you will need to contact our support team first on, 01206 845945 or email us
