Brain Injury and Personalisation

Our services are designed to promote the independence, confidence and wellbeing of local brain injured people.  Services are flexibly designed to enable personal budget holders to exercise choice and control in the way services are delivered.

Anyone living with brain injury will appreciate the cognitive impairments facing a brain injured person on a day to day basis. One of the ways these impairments can manifest themselves in a reduced capacity for original and independent thinking.

To enable brain injured people to overcome these difficulties the team at Headway Derby work with personal budgets holders through a range of person centred techniques. These techniques help individuals to express their needs and priorities for their life in a way that makes sense to them.

Our personal budget holders tell us that this approach helps them to gain new confidence, make new friends and move forward with renewed optimism for the future.
