A new life of possibilities


Two years ago I had a stroke, leaving me with a brain injury. I was very low and depressed, and living at home with my mum and dad. This was hard on my mum as she is unwell. My brother in law suggested that I try to get a place at Headway East Northants. I now go to Headway East Northants and it is with their support that I now live in my own flat.


With the support of my family and Headway East Northants I have also lost a lot of weight. I was 27 stone and I now weigh 13 stone 7lb. Because of this all my clothes were too big and would fall down but again, Headway stepped in.


They got me some money from a 'Headway UK' special fund, and I was taken shopping to get new clothes. I got tops, leggings but my favourite thing is my jumper with a dog on it.


So Headway has helped me to put my life back together.


I have met new people and made new friends and it’s a place I feel safe


Thank you for all your help and support!

We were thrilled to receive a huge quantity of wood Higgins Builders Merchants, which was kindly arranged as a donation from Thomas, who works there.


Woodwork is always such a popular activity here at our Centre, and our clients, together with the support of our volunteers, enjoy working together to create useful items.


With such a generous donation, there's no end to the items that can be created and we can't wait to see what comes out of our woodwork room, so a huge thank you to Higgins!
