Headway Lincolnshire is a local charity that provides information and support to brain injury survivors and their families across the county.

Headway Lincolnshire can help in the following ways -

  • 1:1 Counselling for Brain Injury Survivors
  • 1:1 Counselling for Carers and family members. A brain injury is a family affair.
  • Publications relating to practical aspects of brain injury. These information guides are often invaluable in helping people affected by brain injury come to understand and deal with their changed circumstances.
  • Training courses to improve knowledge and understanding among professionals working in the field of brain injury
  • Six-weekly education groups for brain injury survivors and those caring for them to better understand their brain injury and its effects (delivered online)
  • Peer support groups in Lincoln, Boston, Grantham & Spalding for brain injury survivors and their families to meet other families in similar situations.
  • One-off assessments; either in the home or via Skype/Zoom. We will look at signposting and referring to services if required.
  • Support with applying for a Brain Injury Identity Card
  • Fortnightly Zoom Carers Support Group
  • Weekly Zooms - 'Together from Home' every Thursday morning e.g. Pilates, Laughter Yoga etc
  • Wellbeing Activity Packs – sent out monthly by post
    • Keeping in Touch – Weekly contact by telephone or text with our Development Worker or a volunteer to chat.

Lincoln Social Support Group - Every 1st Thursday of the month at 7pm at The MS Therapy Centre, 50 Outer Circle Drive, Lincoln, LN24JH

This is good for wellbeing because

  • You can gain valuable knowledge and learn about resources from attendees.
  • You can be yourself in an environment which is safe and non-judgemental.
  • You can get the information and support that you need from experienced professionals that is appropriate and timely.

Joining Headway Lincolnshire was a turning point in my life, and it has helped me in so many ways. It enables me to get out and about and meet new people, something I enjoyed doing before my brain injury.
