Brain Injury ID Cards 

 

Headway’s ‘Brain Injury I.D Cards’ continue to be a real boon, offering awareness and understanding for brain injury survivors within the community.

 

The cards are available to anyone aged 18 or over with a brain injury, and best of all, are free of charge. HRH Prince Harry has shown great support for these, too. 

 

These can be carried with you when out and about in public in shops, pubs, restaurants, public transport, etc, and presented to staff, the general public or emergency services if required, to help make others aware of your injury and its effects.

 

They’ve helped so many people avoid judgment and frustration, and have instead helped gain patience, understanding and support.

 

If you’re interested in applying for a Brain Injury ID Card, please speak get in touch. We can help you complete your verification and application process so that you can get your card quickly and easily.
