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.

Positive Blue Badge changes ahead for those with hidden disabilities

The Blue Badge scheme is currently being reviewed and plans are afoot to extend the Badge to those with less visible disabilities, such as brain injury.

 

The changes are described as the biggest being made in the scheme in almost 50 years and it's hoped that they will offer a lifeline to people with hidden disabilities who suffer from travel difficulties.

 

Changes will come into force on 30th August 2019.

An excellent 'Way Ahead' conference

 

We thoroughly enjoyed attending this year's 'Way Ahead' conference in early July. It was the ideal opportunity to share viewpoints and see the diverse range of services provided for those managing ABI. We also got to meet MP for Rhondda, Chris Bryant, who has been working incredibly hard in parliament to improve aftercare and neuro paths for those with ABI and their loved ones.
