Fundraising is vital to our survival and there are loads of fun ways to help raise money and awareness.
Every 90 seconds someone in the UK is admitted to hospital with a Brain Injury.
Yet despite this, there is a lack of funding and knowledge about this ‘invisible’ condition.
Currently, we have to raise 83% of our income to support our services. To maintain our work we are dependent on voluntary donations.
Our members and staff are incredibly grateful to our supporters.
By supporting our charity you are helping to make a remarkable difference in the quality of life for a person with a brain injury.
You can help by raising awareness and raising funds.
- tell your friends about our work
- birthday fundraising
- an event/sponsered activity
Or anything else you are inspired by!
Pick an activity and let us know what you're up to!
(social media links/email)
Also, don’t forget to tell everyone about us by promoting us on your social media
Or, get in touch with your local media(radio/newspaper) to tell them about your experience with Edinburgh Headway Group.
Our ABI Week provides the perfect opportunity for everyone who cares passionately about improving life after brain injury to come together for a week of campaigning and raising funds and awareness.
We hope you will feel inspired to help!
