Headway CambridgeshireBack to Support
Headway Cambridgeshire 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. Anyone can refer and Headway’s support is not time limited.
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.
Services that are free of charge include:
- Information and advice
Services that have a cost include:
- One-to-one work
- Attending the Hub
