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.

Now that our marathon team is full (27 runners in total!), we're really excited to host our annual London Marathon Information Evening on Monday 11th February, to which all 'Team HEN' runners are invited! 

 

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

 

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

Fish & Chip quiz night, 26th January!

 

Our facilitator Freyja and partner Chris belong to 'A Different Direction' choir and are busy fundraising for an amazing trip to perform at New York's Carnegie Hall! 

 

To aid their funding, they've organised a Fish & Chip Quiz  night on Saturday 26th January at Saxon Hall, Raunds, with all proceeds going towards their event. You may remember the choir from the incredible performance they gave alongside the Headway musicians, 'The Custard Caterpillars' back in October!

 

Great night guaranteed - for full details, please visit our 'Events' page. 

 

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.
