Description Aims and Objectives
A brain injury can happen to anyone, at any age, at any time. One cause is a blow to the head - in an accident, for example. Or you could have a stroke or haemorrhage, even at a young age. Or you could have a brain tumour removed.
Headway Guernsey provides information, support and services to adults, and their families, who are living with the long-term effects of a brain injury.
Headway Guernsey aims to:
- ensure that no-one in the Bailiwick has to go though this life-shattering experience on their own.
- raise awareness of brain injury and the effects of this ‘hidden disability’.
- provide information and mutual support to people with a brain injury, and their families.
- organise activities to help people who have become socially isolated after a brain injury to learn new skills, make new friends and increase in confidence.
Headway Guernsey offers information and mutual support to survivors, and their families, plus a programme of physical and cognitive modules, social events and information evenings. Our dream, in the long term, is to create a Headway House – a social centre where people can come during the day to regain their confidence and relearn old skills in an environment where the effects of brain injury are completely understood.
