A bit more…

We were founded in 1985 as a support group by families and interested professionals to address the needs of people with brain injuries and their carers and families. Since then, we have grown, and now provide a range of community-based rehabilitation support services and information for people affected by brain injury, whatever the severity of injury.

Collaboration is a strong feature of our approach and we work in a multidisciplinary way, linking where necessary with resources or people with specialist skills not available within Headway.

We take a lead in advocating for better sharing of resources, information and expertise both between voluntary agencies and between the voluntary and statutory services.

Our Impact

Making sure that what we do is effective is central to our approach to delivering on our mission. To find out more about our outcomes, click the image below or visit headway.ie/about-us/our-outcomes/ You can find out more about our quality framework here.
