Supporting people affected by acquired brain injury across Worcestershire

Acquired brain injury (ABI) is the term used for all injuries to a brain sustained since birth. There are many different causes of brain injury and its effects are complex and wide ranging. These can include stroke, accidents, assaults, tumours, brain haemorrhages, encephalitis and traumatic brain injury.

Headway Worcestershire is a local and independent charity supporting people affected by ABI across Worcestershire. It offers specialist support, information and services to brain injury survivors, their families and carers, as well as to professionals in the health and legal fields.

It provides therapies, rehabilitation and reablement, advocacy, and carer and family support. It provides support groups and counselling alongside wellbeing day services that offer a comfortable social setting where individuals living with an ABI can meet people and make new friends.

The charity is a branch of the national Headway charity, which was founded in 1979.
