About Headway East Northants

 

Headway East Northants is an independent registered charity which aims to provide specialist services for people aged 18 and over with an ABI. The charity was originally a community-based service but was incorpoated on 1st July 1999 (company number 03788049) and we're affiliated to Headway UK, the brain injury association. 

 

We are incredbily proud of our team of staff and volunteers, of course our fantastic group of clients and their families. We are based in Irthlingborough and have a super range of facilities aimed to get people interested, stimulated and socialised. 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. Every individual 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.

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!
