Headway Thames Valley works to improve life after brain injury.
It provides support, services and information to brain injury survivors, their families and carers, as well as campaigning to reduce the incidence of brain injury in the Thames Valley.
There are many possible causes of acquired brain injury (ABI), including a fall, a road accident, sports injury, tumour, stroke, cardiac arrest, complications during operations and post viral infections such as meningitis.
We seek to improve the lives of adults with ABI and to raise awareness of the causes and effects of brain injury. Our dedicated team of clinicians, support workers and volunteers provide help and rehabilitation therapies in various forms; physiotherapy, occupational therapy, neuropsychology, clinical counselling as well as cognitive stimulation and teaching coping strategies to people with a brain injury.
