Headway Cambridge and Peterborough

Back to Support

Headway Cambridge and Peterborough works with families where there has been a brain injury, regardless of the cause. Because brain injury affects every family differently, they provide assessment and support plans tailored to the needs of the individual and the family.

Brain injuries are hidden disabilities that can have dramatic impacts on the lives of not only the people they affect, but also their families. These injuries can by due to a stroke, an infection, or a trauma caused by a fall, a road traffic accident, assault or any other cause.

Headway provides support on a one-to-one basis, including community rehabilitation, one to one gym sessions, and help to get back into employment, education or volunteering.

They also run group sessions two days a week at their rehabilitation hub at Chesterton Methodist Church. These sessions are run by skilled rehabilitation workers, and are designed to help people meet their goals. Activities include creative arts, communication and cognition sessions, supported exercise, mindfulness and adapted sports.

Headway also run a “Growing in Confidence” project at Fen End Farm in Cottenham offering social and therapeutic horticulture for adults with a brain injury in Cambridge and the surrounding areas.
