Action for Brain Injury Week 2017

Action for Brain Injury Week is Headway's high-profile campaign which aims to raise the awareness of Acquired Brain Injuries. This week we have invited the people we support, carers and family members to share how a brain injury has affected their lives.

This year's campaign, A New Me, will allow people to creatively share their experiences in order to challenge the misconceptions of brain injury, while demonstrating the value of gaining access to the right help, at the right time.

This week we will be posting stories and information including:
