Headway

Headway fundraising activities

Brain injury is the largest cause of acquired disability in the working age population – it is most commonly caused by road traffic accidents, assaults, falls and strokes. The consequences of brain injury can be life changing for the individual and those close to them.

Headway Bedford provides a supportive and stimulating environment for people who have an acquired brain injury. They recognise that each person is different and no two injuries are the same and for this reason the services reflect this, focusing on the needs of the individual.

Headway has a range of services which promote rehabilitation/enablement to help clients to build on their existing skills (cognitive, physical, social and emotional) and in turn increase their confidence and self esteem. 

Working closely with those who have a difficulty with communication, young people & volunteers will help them practice communicating in a helpful and encouraging environment as part of their rehabilitation and increased independence.

 

The role is to encourage this enablement process through working alongside clients to help them to increase their abilities, confidence and self esteem. The group aims specifically to raise levels of confidence in conversation skills.

 

Young people are required to have patience, the ability to listen, a good sense of humour and a commitment to attend the group.
