Headway UK Nurse-Led Helpline


You can always come to us here at Headway East Northants , whatever your query. As part of the support network 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 remember, 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

AGM success!


A huge thank you to all who attended our AGM last Friday. We were delighted to host 28 guests at our Irthlingborough Centre, ranging from trustees, staff and volunteers through to clients, families, supporters and town councillors. We thoroughly enjoyed giving the opportunity to reflect on our activities over the previous year. 


Information packs were provided and feedback so far suggests that attendees found the meeting informative, with good take-home value. 


Here's to another great year ahead for Headway East Northants!


Headway Music Group rock the charity fundraiser!


An amazing night was had by all at the fundraising concert on Saturday 6th October, featuring facilitator Freyja, deputy manager Jonny, and the Headway Music Group, raising an incredible £405 EACH for both Headway East Northants and the Cransley Hospice!


The guys all performed  with others to raise funds for both Headway East Northants and the Cransley Hospice and the night was incredibly well-supported, with the venue packed to the rafters! 


Well done to all involved, particularly to Freyja and partner Chris, who worked so hard to create such a professional gig, and of course, our amazing Headway clients for conquering their nerves and performing two songs LIVE!
