We support brain injury survivors in Surrey to live well

Story

In May 2022, while out on a run, I was hit by a car resulting in a fractured skull and multiple bleeds on my brain. The ongoing recovery process has been difficult, tiring and frustrating. However, Headway Surrey have been fantastic in helping me to understand what to expect, coping strategies, and coming to terms with the accident and its difficult consequences. In April, I will be running the London Marathon to raise money for Headway Surrey in thanks for the support they have given me. This will be an immense challenge and any donations would be much appreciated :) x


The charity:

Our aim is to enable adults in Surrey to live well with their acquired brain injury, to be independent and to support their families. To do this we offer a range of services to help with memory, information processing, decision making, managing fatigue, understanding the brain and cognition, emotional and behavioural changes. We provide peer support opportunities and social groups to enable independence and motivation to achieve their best. We support as many people as we can back into employment or volunteering.
