Brain injuries are hidden disabilities that can have dramatic impacts on the lives of not only the people they affect, but also their families. These injuries can by due to a stroke, an infection, or a trauma caused by a fall, a road traffic accident, assault or any other cause.

Headway provides support on a one-to-one basis, including community rehabilitation, one to one gym sessions, and help to get back into employment, education or volunteering.

They also run group sessions in Cambridge and Peterborough. These sessions are run by skilled rehabilitation workers, and are designed to help people meet their goals. Activities include creative arts, communication and cognition sessions, supported exercise, mindfulness and adapted sports.
