Our Services | Headway Black Country

We provide a range of services and activities for people over 18 years of age affected by acquired brain injury and to their families and carers.

Through these we aim to:

Support clients in meeting their needs and realising their potential.

  • Provide a safe environment for clients to meet others with similar experiences and challenges.
  • Enable clients to engage in social, educational and creative activities and improve independent personal skills, confidence and self-esteem.
  • Provide face to face or telephone support for those affected by acquired brain injury.
  • Promote understanding of acquired brain injury.
  • Raise awareness and support for our work in the Black Country area of the West Midlands.


As far as we are able we offer a comprehensive range of services to support those affected by acquired brain injury including;

  • Advice and information – including on the effects and possible consequences of acquired brain injury, on sources of support from Headway and other organisations and, through our Citizens Advice partner, on benefits, debt employment etc. issues.
  • Life Skills – our Specialist Life Skills Service works with survivors of acquired brain injury to enable them to manage cognitive, behavioural, emotional or physical effects of a brain injury.
  • Outreach – through our Community Outreach Workers providing one to one support for survivors and families in hospitals, at home or in other community locations.
  • Carer Support – regular Carer and Social Group events and activities offering informal opportunities to meet share experiences, support each other and socialize.
  • Emotional Support – through our Counselling Service or informally in conversation with our staff team


We are always looking for opportunities to address unmet needs through the development of new services and activities that can be self-sustaining once established. We welcome opportunities to work in partnership with other organisations in meeting the needs of those affected by acquired brain injury and stroke.
