Headway Black Country
Who we are
Acquired Brain Injury can affect anyone at any time.
Each year as many as 1 million people attending hospital in the UK will have sustained a head injury. Of these, about 135,000 are confirmed as having a brain injury. The problems caused by a brain injury may not be obvious to other people. Brain injury can, however, completely change the life of the survivor and their families.
Regardless of the cause Headway Black Country can help. We are dedicated to supporting adult brain injury survivors, their carers and families whose lives are often turned upside down by a brain injury.
We have a small, expert team that can help guide you to the information and support you may need. We also provide a specialist Brain Injury Rehabilitation Service that offers a wide range of activities designed to help brain injury survivors relearn lost skills and gain new ones.
Headway Black Country relies on voluntary donations and fundraising to continue to provide vital services to brain injury survivors and their families.
We are responsible for raising our own funds locally, which all goes directly into our work with brain injured people and their families based in the Black Country area of the West Midlands.
Headway Black Country is independent and impartial. As more people now survive accidents and live with brain injury, the need for our work is growing.
Donations are used are to help us, for example, purchase or provide:
• Items required for activities such as equipment, training materials, craft items etc.
• One off items needed such as furniture, electrical items etc.
• Publicity materials
• Special projects and services
• Continued services for people affected by brain injury.
