Herefordshire Headway

Herefordshire Headway supports and re-habilitates people with acquired brain injuries and supports their carers and families. Our clients are people who previously had a normal life until they were involved in a car accident, had an industrial, domestic or sporting accident, were the victim of a serious assault, suffered either a stroke, aneurysm or tumour or had a brain disabling illness such as meningitis.

Support for Carers
Carers Support Hub
When someone suffers a brain injury it affects many other people. Carers need support at a number of stages

Crisis — when a loved one is admitted into hospital immediately after suffering a brain injury or diagnosis

Returning Home — Pre or post discharge from acute hospital care

Facing Change — After the return home when high levels of support end and daily life resumes.
