Charity information

Headway East London

We support people with acquired brain injury, their families and carers, across 13 London Boroughs. Our services include a day centre, therapies, young persons group, family support and advocacy work.

Founded 1997

  • Mission statement

    It is estimated that 50,000 Londoners of working age are living with the consequences of a long-term brain injury, a “Hidden Disability” which can leave people isolated & without support. We believe that everyone has something to contribute both within Headway House and the wider community – that every person with a brain injury should be valued, respected and have every opportunity to live a full and active life.

  • Aims

    Headway East London aims to:

    • Provide an advice and advocacy service specific to the particular needs of people with acquired brain injury, both at our Hackney centre and within their community.
    • Run a Headway House service for Londoners with acquired brain injury; based at our centre in Hackney, offering support, activities & social opportunities to people from 14 Boroughs.
    • Offer therapy services to people with acquired brain injury within our catchment area (including craniosacral therapy, exercise therapy, neurological physio & psychotherapy.)
    • Give support and advice to the families and carers of people with acquired brain injury, both at our centre and within the community- in the form of monthly support groups at 4 locations.
