A local Worcestershire charity has been rated ‘Outstanding’ in a report by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Headway Worcestershire works mostly with people who have an acquired brain injury and supports people in their own homes. The charity offers a range of services including outreach, day opportunities programmes, counselling and self-help groups and supports families and carers affected by brain injury. Headway Worcestershire provides services to around 300 people every year and will be celebrating its 30th anniversary later this year.
The report praised the charity, stating that: “Staff were highly skilled, motivated and knowledgeable in the care and support required for people with an acquired brain injury” and “achieved positive outcomes which exceeded expectations.”
Kathryn Davis, chief executive commented: “Our specialism is acquired brain injury, Worcestershire-wide, and our aim is to help people achieve their goals and enjoy a quality of life consistent with their desires and interests. We are so proud of everyone for their hard work and dedication to the charity. It has been a real team effort.”
