About Headway East Northants

 

Headway East Northants, based in Irthlingborough, 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 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 happy to welcome visitors to our centre for a look around and a chat. If this is of interest, please do get in touch.

An INCREDIBLE London Marathon 2019!

Team HEN were nothing short of phenomenal in this year's Virgin London Marathon! 

 

Each and every runner did an amazing job for us, battling on through shin splints, aches, pains and even lost toenails (OW!) to finish those 26.2 miles for us. We were bowled over by the efforts everyone went to, not only with the intensity of the physical training, but also their creative and imaginative ideas for fundraising, all on top of juggling work and family commitments. Each of them needs a superhero cape! 

 

So far we have raised over £45,000 and we're still counting! It's just amazing, and we will be able to continue enriching and supporting the lives of those managing ABI with this superb amount of money raised.

 

We will shortly be posting some great photos from this special event so watch this space! If you're interested in running for us next year - get in touch!
