About Headway East Northants

 

Headway East Northants is an independent registered charity, providing specialist services for people aged 18 and over with an acquired brain injury.

 

The charity was originally a community-based service but was incorporated on 1st July 1999 (company number 03788049). Additionally, we are affiliated to Headway UK, the brain injury association. 

 

We are incredibly proud of our team of staff and volunteers, and of course our fantastic clients and their families. We are based in Irthlingborough and have a super range of facilities aimed to interest, stimulate and socialise our client base.

 

We really do aim to provide something for everyone, whether it's getting hands-on in our woodwork construction room, 'having a go' with a musical instrument, or creating something amazing in our art workshop. Everyone is encouraged, supported and, above all, valued.

 

We provide information, signposting and both practical and emotional support services for people with Acquired Brain Injury ('ABI'), their families and carers. 

 

 

 

 

If you'd like to visit us, and see all this for yourself, you can be guaranteed a warm welcome at Headway East Northants! We're always delighted to welcome visitors to our centre for a look around and a chat. If this is of interest, please do get in touch.

 

You can call us on 01933 652311 or by emailing us on  rebecca.lake@headwayeastnorthants.org.uk

Amazing donation of £790 from East Northants Councillor, Roger Powell!

 

We are thrilled to have received an incredible donation of £790 from East Northants Councillor, Roger Powell, who has chosen to donate to us via his Empowerment Fund.

 

Councillor Powell was familiar with our work via Irthlingborough Town Council and got in touch to see how he could help. We spoke directly with our clients, asking for their input about any new purchases they could recommend to enhance our centre services. 

 

We were very excited to place an order for several brand new Meccano and Lego modelling kits, professional art supplies, historical DVD sets and even a karaoke machine at the request of our clients! 

 

We thank Councillor Powell sincerely for this wonderful donation to our centre!

We're delighted to announce that we've been chosen by Wellingborough Golf Club as one of two local charities the club wishes to support over 2019, the other being Wellibus! 

 

Chairperson, Sally McKeown, got in touch and invited Becky along to a fundraising bridge drive back in December, and then to the ladies' club prizegiving supper, where Becky was able to meet fellow members and chat a little more indepth about the services we provide here at Headway East Northants. 

 

The Club has lots of terrific events in the pipeline to help raise funds for us, including garden parties and a jazz afteroon in June, which we're told has ALREADY sold out! We are so grateful to the Club for selecting us to support in 2019, and look forward to working together.
