Description

Edinburgh Headway Group Rehabilitation Day Support

Edinburgh Headway Group aims to empower and enrich the lives of adults who have survived an acquired brain injury. We do this by providing high quality person-centred rehabilitation services which support both adults with brain injuries and their carers:

Rehabilitation: We help people improve their cognitive, physical and emotional abilities to improve their quality of life and help them re-join their communities. Our Day Service provides an important part of our rehabilitation work enriching the lives of our service users whose opportunities to get out of their homes may be very restricted and many activities inaccessible.

Support: We offer practical and emotional support to members and their families. Our Carers Project provides support to unpaid carers via social events, peer groups and offers training and information

Young Person Social Group: We run a social group for young adults (18-30) with an ABI. The group aims to enable young people to develop friendships, build confidence and socialisation skills, improve health and wellbeing and reduce social isolation and likelihood of depression.

Awareness: We are committed to raising awareness about ABI to the wider public, the media and Parliament. Our external training programme provides Acquired Brain Injury Training to individuals and professionals.
