Headway East Northants Activity Centre

 

Our superb activity centre offers a stimulating, inclusive and varied range of services, many of which are listed on our Home page.

 

As well as the fantastic activities outlined in our Home page (where you can see our rooms, including woodwork, art and art therapy, music, I.T, cookery and gardening), we also offer discussion and reminiscence sessions, engaging word puzzle sessions, our popular Peer Group, a weekly Ukelele Club and trips out and about, including weekly ten pin bowling sessions, shopping trips, nature walks, etc.

 

 

Our aim is to offer our clients the opportunity to socialise, try new things, help re-learn lost skills and integrate into the wider community, all of which we believe positively enhances personal wellbeing. Clients themselves speak of the "real family atmosphere" here at the Centre, something of which we are immensely proud.

 

 

 

Assistance and support in regaining lost skills - and learning new ones.

Our service reflects our clients. 

 

We really are a person-centred service that understands the complexities of 'the hidden disability' and the problems that may arise with cognitive, memory, communication and behaviour. 

 

Each client is assessed individually, so that together, we can develop an individual learning plan for the client to support, enhance and empower their lives to the best they can be.

An INCREDIBLE London Marathon 2019!

Team HEN were nothing short of phenomenal in this year's Virgin London Marathon! 

 

Each and every runner did an amazing job for us, battling on through shin splints, aches, pains and even lost toenails (OW!) to finish those 26.2 miles for us. We were bowled over by the efforts everyone went to, not only with the intensity of the physical training, but also their creative and imaginative ideas for fundraising, all on top of juggling work and family commitments. Each of them needs a superhero cape! 

 

So far we have raised over £45,000 and we're still counting! It's just amazing, and we will be able to continue enriching and supporting the lives of those managing ABI with this superb amount of money raised.

 

We will shortly be posting some great photos from this special event so watch this space! If you're interested in running for us next year - get in touch!

Go as wild and wacky as you like - you could even design your own head gear, a la Philip Treacy!

 

If you take part - make sure you send us some photos! 

 

Thank you so much!
