Family Member Groups

Sometimes, there is no substitute for talking to other people who have had a similar experience to give you hope and energy to face the challenges ahead. Our family member support groups in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and the South East provide a safe space with a facilitator to share your experience of the impact of a family member’s brain injury.  Share your story, listen to others or just enjoy the company of others who understand the stresses of the situation you’re in.

Dublin

Headway hosts our Dublin Family Members’ Group one Saturday a month in our Blackhall Green office. This group is facilitated by Headway staff and is a friendly, confidential space for anyone caring for, or living with, someone with a brain injury.
