To promote understanding of all aspects of brain injury; and to provide information, support and services to people with an acquired brain injury, their family and carers.
Edinburgh Headway Group aims to empower and enrich the lives of adults who have survived an acquired brain injury. They do this by providing high quality person-centred rehabilitation services which support both adults with brain injuries and their carers.
Rehabilitation: They help people improve their cognitive, physical and emotional abilities to improve their quality of life and help them re-join their communities. Their Day Service provides an important part of their rehabilitation work enriching the quality of life for their service users whose opportunities to get out of their homes may be very restricted and many activities inaccessible.
Support: They offer practical and emotional support to members and their families. Their Carers Project provides support to unpaid carers via social events, peer groups and offers training and information.
Awareness: They are committed to raising awareness about ABI to the wider public, the media and Parliament. Their external training provides Acquired Brain Injury Training to individuals and professionals.
