About Headway Black Country

We provide a range of services and activities for people over 18 years of age affected by acquired brain injury and to their families and carers in the Black Country ( Dudley,Sandwell,Walsall and Wolverhampton).

Acquired brain injury (ABI) covers all situations in which brain injury has occurred since birth, and includes traumatic brain injury (TBI) as well as tumour, stroke, brain haemorrhage and encephalitis, to name a few. The effects are often life changing and long term,

We aim to offer a comprehensive range of services to support those affected by acquired brain injury including;

  • Advice and information – including on the effects and possible consequences of acquired brain injury, on sources of support from Headway and other organisations and, through our Citizens Advice partner, on benefits, debt employment etc. issues.
  • Life Skills – our Specialist Life Skills Service works with survivors of acquired brain injury to enable them to manage cognitive, behavioural, emotional or physical effects of a brain injury.
  • Outreach – through our Community Outreach Workers providing one to one support for survivors and families in hospitals, at home or in other community locations.
  • Carer Support – regular Carer and Social Group events and activities offering informal opportunities to meet share experiences, support each other and socialize.
  • Emotional Support – through our Counselling Service or informally in conversation with our staff team

 We are always looking for opportunities to address unmet needs through the development of new services and activities that can be self-sustaining once established.

Fund raising and donations make an important contribution to the services and activities we can offer.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
