Official Statement: COVID-19

Despite our doors being closed since mid March we would like to reassure all members, carers, staff and volunteers that we are still here and doing all that we can to support you all through this very worrying time.

Here For You

Headway Leicester is going to extraordinary lengths to ensure help remains available to vulnerable individuals and their families during the lockdown and has responded swiftly to the outbreak by tailoring remote services to help brain injury survivors cope with the situation.

Keeping Connected
