Story

Brain injury can challenge every aspect of your life, walking, talking, thinking and feeling and the losses can be severe and permanent. It can mean losing the life you once lived and the person you once were.

We all think 'it will never happen to me', but every year around 350,000 people are admitted to hospital with an acquired brain injury. That's one every 90 seconds.

A brain injury can happen to anyone, at any time. When it does, Headway is here to help.

Join our team of #HeadwayHeroes taking part in the TCS London Marathon 2024 to help us continue improving life after brain injury. Please take the time to read their inspiring stories and help them achieve their fundraising targets by sponsoring them!

£250.00 covers the average cost of emergency travel to and from hospital over a 4-week period to visit a loved one following a brain injury. £500.00 can fund the running costs of our nurse-led helpline service for one day, whilst £2,480.00 can support the service for one whole week. Any donation, big or small, will make a huge difference to survivors, families and carers across the UK.

Thank you for supporting our mission. We can't wait to see our #HeadwayHeroes take the start line!
