"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!

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!
