About Leicestershire, Leicester & Rutland Headway

What we do

Headway the brain injury association was set up as a national organisation in 1979. Since then, groups and branches affiliated with Headway UK have developed across the British Isles.

 

Leicestershire, Leicester & Rutland Headway started in 1990 from humble beginnings with one part-time member of staff. Today we employ 10 members of staff and operate a day service five days a week plus a city and countywide (including Rutland) outreach service.

 

We have a board of 14 Trustees with a wealth of skills and knowledge, alongside an army of willing volunteers from a diverse range of backgrounds.

Acquired Brain Injury

A brain injury occurring since birth due to a haemorrhage, aneurysm, tumour, infection, AV malformation, stroke.

Traumatic Brain Injury
