Community Integration Service

 

To compliment the services we offer at our Irthlingborough centre,  the Community Integration Service is designed to provide clients with flexible and holistic support in their own home and within their community (shopping, appointments, etc).  

 

The Community Integration Team offers a range of services including:

 

Assistance to regain lost skills and learn new ones

 

Cognitive rehabilitation

 

Opportunities to gain support from others and share experiences

 

Help to address emotional and social needs

 

Participation in leisure and social activities

 

Support for your families, carers and friends

 

Support towards independence

 

Links and introductions to other agencies

 
 

Headway East Northants is truly a person-centred service. We understand the complexities of 'the hidden disability' and the problems that may arise with cognition, memory, communication and behaviour. 

 

Each client is assessed individually and we develop an individual learning plan for that 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! 

 

Hats for Headway, Friday 24th May!

 

Next Friday 24th May is the national 'Hats for Headway' fundraising day, so if you are interested in helping raise a few pennies for our centre and spread awareness of our charity, why not encourage your friends and family to take part?!

 

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!
