A charity that helps and supports people affected by brain injury has been given a £20,000 boost thanks to a donation from Westfield Health. Headway has received the funding towards its regional support system – in the Yorkshire region the charity currently has 11 groups and branches including Sheffield, Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster, as well as further afield in Leeds, Scunthorpe, Hull and York.
The groups and branches are used by people with a brain injury, their families and carers, ensuring local support is readily available to prevent isolation and further vulnerability.
The donation from Westfield Health will help Headway continue to work with regional coordinators who oversee the work of the local groups, helping them to deliver support services tailored to each community’s needs.
Headway Trusts and Statutory Fundraiser, Lorna Page said: “None of our vital services are possible without generous donations to help with our costs and we are hugely grateful to Westfield Health for their support. It will make a massive difference to those living with the effects of brain injury.”
Graham Moore, Chairman of Westfield Health, said: “We are very pleased to be able to make this donation and hope it helps Headway continue to improve everyday life for the people affected by brain injury who depend on its vital training and support.”
