We understand that variety, safety and inclusion are all vital factors to those with an acquired brain injury.

 

 

Our clients' families and carers can be assured that our Centre provides a welcoming, comfortable and non-judgmental environment for their loved ones during their time here. 

 

 

Many visitors, and clients themselves, talk of how our centre has a "real family atmosphere" - something of which we are very proud. 

 

 

Our centre is 'client-led', and our activities and facilities are inspired by our clients' preferences and suggestions. We aim to cater for all tastes, interests and abilities, and will always focus on what CAN be done, rather than what can't. 

 

 

(Here we are cheering on England during the 2018 World Cup tournament!)

 

 

We host some terrific social events throughout the year; for example, summer barbecues, coffee mornings at Easter and Christmas, a Christmas lunch for everyone as well as other ad-hoc events. All of these combine to support socialisation, integration into the wider community, and enhance personal wellbeing. 

 

 

 

Please do take a look at the various facility room details. We hope they offer you a bit of an insight as to the variety of fantastic activities and services we can provide to our clients here at Headway East Northants.

 

 

If you'd like to come and see these rooms and facilities for yourself 'in the flesh', please don't hesitate to ask - we'd be delighted to show you around. Simply give us a call on 01933 652311, or email us at   rebecca.lake@headwayeastnorthants.org.uk.

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!
