Coronavirus Appeal

Why we need your help

Headway Suffolk has launched this appeal to raise £100,000 for the charity to help our vulnerable clients during the coronavirus crisis.

Staff at Headway Suffolk, who look after people with brain injury, stroke and neurological conditions, are working round the clock to help its clients and members of the community to get through the Covid-19 crisis.

Helen Fairweather, CEO of Headway Suffolk, said

“We have a positive attitude and are doing what we can in these difficult times to help our 275 clients and their families.

"Our home care team is working throughout the county helping people to stay well in their homes, assisting with personal care, medication and cooking.

"We have been asked by Social Care to take on many more clients than we normally would.

"This means we help multiple people. It helps the person to be discharged from hospital quickly and frees up a bed for someone else who needs it.

"Our staff are amazing and going the extra mile.

"Like all care providers we are struggling to obtain masks and face shields to keep them safe.

"Sadly, our hubs are closed but we are keeping in touch with clients by phone and sending out activity packs to keep them stimulated.

"Our counsellors are offering counselling through Zoom. Many clients are struggling with fear, not seeing people and being isolated.

"Clients are not able to shop. Most do not have an oven as it is not safe for them to use one so rely on microwave meals. We have been unable to source ready meals so have decided to make our own and deliver them to our clients.

"We will take other items of food and essential items to them. The charity would be grateful for food donations."
