We support brain injury survivors in Surrey to live well


I'm doing a Charity Skydive for Headway Surrey at Netheravon Airfield between near Salisbury. 13,500ft which is over 2 miles high, freefalling at speeds of up to120mph!

For someone who has a total fear of heights, I think this is one of the most stupid things i’ve ever done😳 but it’s for such a great charity who do wonderful things for others.


Headway Surrey's aim is to enable adults in Surrey to live well with acquired brain injury, to be independent and to support their families.

These are people like you and me, who suddenly have a stroke, road traffic accident, sports injury, work accident, encephalitis, meningitis, brain tumour, aneurisms, hypoxia (lack of oxygen eg. drowning or during an operation) and many more medical events.

Headway Surrey offers a range of services to help with memory, information processing, decision making, managing fatigue, understanding the brain and cognition, emotional and behavioural changes. They help the families come to terms with the trauma and how they will adapt to life with a brain injury. They provide peer support opportunities and social groups to enable independence and motivation to achieve their best. They support as many people as we can back into employment or volunteering. "You are my lifeline!"
