This important charity provides essential support, information, and services to people in Jersey who are affected by brain injury. As the charity has grown and awareness of the work they do for those who are affected by brain injuries increases, Headway Jersey are contacted regularly for information and advice.
From very small beginnings in 1997 the charity has grown dramatically. The Headway centre is now seeing an increase in the number of referrals. They currently have over 150 survivors of brain injury registered as members. Some require occasional support, however, up to 70 members access services on a weekly basis. These services are an essential lifeline for members and also provide support and respite to families and carers who need it most.
In 2019, the Channel Islands Lottery provided £30,000 of funds for salaries for a neuro-physiotherapist and sacro-cranial therapist.
