Headway Bristol provides a range of services to people who have had a traumatic or acquired brain injury, stroke or a brain tumour, and provides support and information to their carers and families. The Charity provides day services for social & cognitive rehabilitation of brain injured adults, as well as one-to-one outreach services. Headway Bristol accepts referrals from Bristol, South Glos, Bath, West Wilts, North East Somerset and North Somerset.
The support service for carers and families is available by contacting Headway Centre.
A Carers group meets regularly in Headway Centre at 19:00 on the first Tuesday of each month. There is a monthly Drop-in evening at Headway Centre too, which takes place alongside the Carers group meeting on the first Tuesday of each month (19:00 -21:00). The Drop-in offers a recreation room, computer facilities, the resource library, and access to advice and support.
You do not need to be a member and sessions are available free to people with head injury, their family members or their carers.
Appointments for visits to the Day Centre, other than for the Drop-In sessions, can be available from Monday to Friday between 10:00 and 15:30 at Headway Centre, or an appointment can be made for support staff to provide one-to-one or family support in your home or other suitable place.
The Resource Library is open to people who have suffered a brain injury, their families and carers, and other professionals. It is a relaxed, friendly and welcoming space in which to read, find information and learn about other resources and organisations.
There is also a facilitated peer support social group for young adults aged 18-35 (HIYA!)
