All of our work is aimed at helping adults with acquired brain injuries (our members), their carers and their families.
Within our premises there is wide range of rehabilitation activities through our Day Support. We provide activities from Monday-Thursday in our large recreational rehab suite and well equipped gymnasium, as well as running regular outings.
It is important to us that the family members and friends of our members are also supported. We run a Carer Support program which provides support to those who are caring for a relative or friend with a brain injury through social, information and peer support events.
We also work closely with families to ensure they are well supported. Read more
I was a bit nervous about going along to the Edinburgh Headway Group, but it soon became a real lifeline. The service was really valuable – it helped to talk to people who’d been through something similar and I have regained so much confidence and re-learnt everyday living skills that we all take for granted. As much as your friends and family try to sympathise, they can never truly understand what living with a brain injury is like.
