Further Details

Headway West London is a branch of Headway UK, the national brain injury association. We are run by a committee of volunteers from a range of professional backgrounds, as well as brain injury survivors and carers of injured survivors. The monthly support groups are facilitated by qualified volunteers, all of whom understand life changing effects of brain injury.

WE currently provide two monthly support groups, one in Fulham and one in Ealing. We welcome both those who have experienced a brain injury and the family, friends and carers of people with a brain injury.

The groups aim to offer the opportunity for people to chat about their experiences with others who understand what it is like living with a brain injury. The friendly, informal atmosphere enables the members to give and receive support in a relaxed environment. The groups also provide information about various aspects of brain injury and can signpost people to other sources of information and support. New members are always welcome. If possible, it would be helpful if any new members could contact us first - by telephone or email.
