Headway East London has been supporting people affected by brain injury across 13 London boroughs since 1997. We offer specialist support and services to survivors and their family, whilst also campaigning for greater public awareness. Our vision is to build a community where people with brain injury are valued, respected and able to fulfil their potential.
