Life In Lockdown

Imagine living every day of your life in isolation. The effects of brain injury can leave survivors lacking the confidence to interact with society. Throughout the pandemic we have continued to provide our hybrid support to ensure no one felt alone.

The last year has been tough on everyone. Repeated lockdowns have left people isolated and lonely, often harming their mental wellbeing.

But imagine living every day of your life in isolation

Social isolation is associated with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and a sense that one has less control over ones life. Social isolation after a brain injury is common.

It was vital that we continued to support our members when we had to shut our doors in March 2020 and it is even more important that our services are here for those who need it now and in the future.

Help us reach our £1000 target during Action for Brain Injury Week. Read what our members enjoyed about our support in their Life in Lockdown stories.

I have loved all the support from Headway and I have valued the reason to get up and keep meeting and keep going with trying crafts and mindful relaxation sessions once I got use to using zoom.

Keep up the good work. Love the activity sessions we do and the packs we get. Someone thinks about us and cares. Thankyou!

Headway has been a lifeline to us at a very difficult time.

Through our #DigitalDayCentre we have helped new referrals with any feelings they may be experiencing including sadness and frustration as they come to terms with their injury. 1-1 counselling sessions have also helped survivors and their families grieve for who they were and what they have lost whilst trying to adjust to their changed lives.

The sudden nature by which a brain injury occurs does not allow for a period of adjustment so please support us so we can be here for those who need our services.

Thank you from all of us at Headway Leicester.
