Learning new skills can be a challenge for anyone, but even more so when living with the effects of a brain injury.  This issue is examined by drawing on the experiences of Headway’s Vice President and double Olympic gold medallist James Cracknell OBE, and service users from Headway groups and branches.

Every year Headway’s Annual Awards attract nominees with incredible stories of dedication, love and sacrifice as people come to terms with the effects of brain injury.  Meet the Annual Award finalists whose special achievements were recognised on Friday 6 December, in a glittering ceremony at the InterContinental Hotel in Mayfair.

To mark the launch of a new factsheet on the subject the issue of continence problems – a common effect of brain injury – is explored.

The issue of concussion in sport is rarely out of the headlines for long.  Although rugby has made progress on concussion, other sports have shown they still have a long way to go to properly protect their players.

If you’re looking for a fabulous frock or a stylish suit for a festive gathering, say “no to the new” and see what you can find at your local charity shop.

Headway is proud to announce that it has partnered with leading safety equipment manufacturer Centurion to help raise awareness of brain injury in the construction industry.
