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 by raising awareness with the public. 

 

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.

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!
