Headway UK Nurse-Led Helpline


You can always come to us here at Headway East Northants , whatever your query.


However, as an enhancement of the support we can offer, you may also like to know that the main Headway UK charity provides a fully confidential helpline, available to anyone who may have a question or query regarding brain injury.


Do however bear in mind that this helpline is run by the main 'Headway UK' charity, and not us here at Headway East Northants. 


The helpline, run by both trained nurses and non-clinical staff, is available from 9.00am until 5.00pm, Mondays to Fridays. While the helpline cannot offer medical or legal advice, medical diagnoses or personal recommendations, it can provide further information and support.


If the helpline is of interest, the number is 0808 800 2244, or you can email on  helpline@headway.org.uk


Further details about the helpline can be found by clicking this link:  https://www.headway.org.uk/supporting-you/helpline/

London Marathon Information Evening, 11th February


We thoroughly enjoyed hosting our annual London Marathon Information Evening on Monday 11th February, and were proud to welcome a record number of runners!


The informal evening, held at our Irthlingborough centre, offered the chance for runners to take a look around our centre, meet fellow participants, and of course it was great opportunity for us to meet these amazing people in person! 


Guest speaker this year was Andrew Walker, himself an experienced London Marathon runner, and a member of Team HEN 2019. Andrew shared his knowledge and experiences, offering hints/tips about build-up to race day, nutrition, lasting the distance, and of course, recovery.


Huge thanks to all who attended!




New Year, New You? Come and be a volunteer!


Want to make a positive change for 2019? Then come and be part of our amazing team of volunteers!


Whether you have a spare day in the week, or even just an hour or two, visit our centre and meet our fantastic people. We have so much to offer those who've survived brain injury - maybe it could be YOU who helps someone re-learn a lost skill, or take on a new one.


For all volunteering enquiries, please call on 01933 652311 or email our deputy manager, Jonny Tudor, on  jonny.tudor@headwayeastnorthants.org.uk
