We believe 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.

Amazing donation of £790 from East Northants Councillor, Roger Powell!

 

We are thrilled to have received an incredible donation of £790 from East Northants Councillor, Roger Powell, who has chosen to donate to us via his Empowerment Fund.

 

Councillor Powell was familiar with our work via Irthlingborough Town Council and got in touch to see how he could help. We spoke directly with our clients, asking for their input about any new purchases they could recommend to enhance our centre services. 

 

We were very excited to place an order for several brand new Meccano and Lego modelling kits, professional art supplies, historical DVD sets and even a karaoke machine at the request of our clients! 

 

We thank Councillor Powell sincerely for this wonderful donation to our centre!

We're delighted to announce that we've been chosen by Wellingborough Golf Club as one of two local charities the club wishes to support over 2019, the other being Wellibus! 

 

Chairperson, Sally McKeown, got in touch and invited Becky along to a fundraising bridge drive back in December, and then to the ladies' club prizegiving supper, where Becky was able to meet fellow members and chat a little more indepth about the services we provide here at Headway East Northants. 

 

The Club has lots of terrific events in the pipeline to help raise funds for us, including garden parties and a jazz afteroon in June, which we're told has ALREADY sold out! We are so grateful to the Club for selecting us to support in 2019, and look forward to working together.
