"Volunteers are not paid. Not because they are worthless -  but because they are priceless"


We all have something to offer and so why not share that 'something' and become a Volunteer at Headway East Northants? There are so many reasons why it'd be a great idea. You'll not only be helping the improve quality of life of a brain injury survivor, their families and carers, but you'll also benefit those in the local community, open up opportunities for development of skills, get some time to socialise with our terrific team, and above all, have fun doing it. There's always something to gain in return!


Volunteer to Fundraise!


Headway East Northants recognises the value of each and every one of our volunteer fundraisers, and every penny raised truly counts.


Why not join us in a supermarket bag pack, bake a cake or hold a raffle or coffee morning to support us in our fundraising endeavours?


Do you  knit, crochet or make greeting cards? If so, you'd be warmly welcomed to pop along to our informal craft group, which meets on Monday afternoon 1.30-3.30pm here at Headway in Irthlingborough. 


All items made at the group are sold to raise funds for Headway East Northants.  A small charge of £1 is made to cover the cost of tea & coffee, but all yarns and materials are provided. We would however ask if you can bring your own knitting.crochet needles if you can! 


Please be assured that a warm welcome awaits you from a fantastic group of people. For further information, please contact Claire Phillips, General Manager, on 01933 652311 or emailing her at   claire.phillips@headwayeastnorthants.org.uk

Amazing donation from Higgins!


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! 


If there's anything that you may be interested in donating to us here at Headway, please do get in touch as we'd love to hear from you! Please email  rebecca.lake@headwayeastnorthants.org.uk
