Charity of the Year

Headway SELNWK has been supporting acquired brain injury survivors for over 40 years. We have a long and proud history of nurturing peer led support within our local communities.

Headway SELNWK is the local branch of Headway UK and as such supports people affected by an acquired brain injury (BI) in the South-East London Boroughs (Bexley, Bromley, Greenwich, Lambeth, Lewisham and Southwark) and in North West Kent (Dartford/Gravesend and Medway). Following a Brain Injury, many individuals experience persistent problems and need on-going support. We offer a person centred service that understands the complexities and problems that may arise after injury particularly with emotions, cognition, memory, communication and behaviour.

Headway SELNWK supports guides and motivates both those with a Brain Injury and their family and carers on their journey towards achieving their goals, inclusion in to the community and maintaining a fulfilling life. We are currently working with over 200 individuals with Brain Injury to help them achieve their best potential.
