As we all know Spring is a time of joy, growth and movement. Well this spring Headway Derby are asking you to get moving with our #Springintoaction campaign.   The Spring Into Action campaign looks to highlight the benefits of exercise after suffering a Brain Injury, and teach each other new ways in which we can keep active. We all know there are benefits to exercise, but we want to see how Brain Injury survivors’ well-being has improved since exercising. Now we don’t just mean your typical ‘gym’ workout, as good as they can be. We want the unusual, new and creative ways in which you exercise. More so now than ever we need to keep active for our physical but also mental well-being. We want the lot! Pictures of your activities, Videos, Quotes and even those sweaty selfies when you’re done! Throughout the Spring into action campaign we will be showcasing different types of exercise, ways we like to keep active ourselves and mindful tips you can introduce into your own activity. Use our hashtag #Springintoaction so we can see all the fabulous ways your keeping fit through this pandemic.

Headway Derby offers a comprensive tailored one to one rehabilitation service supporting brain injured people to live in their own home and local community, providing help with budgeting, daily living and implementing plans that have been developed by our specialist brain injury support workers, or the clients' rehabilitation team.  The aim of this service is to encourage the service user (we call our service users members) to live progressively more independently and maximise their whole life prospects and potential.  


The majority of our clients pay for their services through their Personal Budget, Interim Compensation Funding or through self funding.

There are a couple of projects that we recieve Grant Funding to deliver, as such we can offer a limited amount of free places for these.

Please contact us to discuss your needs and how you may be supported by our team of specialist Brain Injury Support Workers. We can look at creating a plan and the associated costs together to see how best to support you as you learn to live with your brain injury.
