Family Services | Headway Black Country

Support for families and carers

The family and carers of someone who has a brain injury are almost certainly likely to be affected by the changes in their partner, father, mother, child or friend.

That is why at Headway Black Country we aim to provide support and information for adults over 18 years with an acquired brain injury, their families and/or carers too.

Carer Support Groups:

We have a regular programme of Carer Support Groups. These are informal opportunities for carers to get together over a coffee and meet others who understand the difficulty in coping with the effects of brain injury.
