Further Details

Headway East London is more than just a provider of professional services, it's an important community. Around 170 people visit our premises on a weekly basis. Of these 120 have an ABI and 50 do not; some people are paid and some are volunteer helpers. The organisation continues to grow and develop and get better at helping people to take up roles and responsibilities they can feel proud of.

The Headway House is open five days a week, acting as the hub for all the charitable activity generated by Headway East London with services including family and carer support, a younger person's network, outreach, a volunteering programme, occupational programme, and key Therapies (see Services
