Fundraising for Headway Derby

Headway Derby is a registered charity and relies on fundraising to deliver its services and support the diverse range of brain injured people living in the Derby and South Derbyshire area. As more people now survive accidents and live with the effects of brain injury, the need for our work is growing. At the same time, we intend to extend and improve the services we offer.

Your support in the past has helped us to deliver services in many ways:

  • Providing members days services twice weekly catering for 20 to 25 members at a time
  • Providing 80 hours of outreach services every week to about 30 members
  • Maintaining our allotment services
  • Providing information, advice and guidance to families and carers affected by brain injury
  • Delivering accredited training programmes to refine and develop whole-life skills and strategies

There are so many ways that individuals and organisations can help support our work. Here are some examples.

Giving via your mobile phone

Supporting 'Headway Derby' is now simple - text HWDY01 to 70070 and the amount you wish to donate, and instantly donate in support of brain injury survivors and their families and carers locally. Thank you for your support.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

We welcome the opportunity to partner with business wishing to support our work.  Perhaps you are a local company or branch of a larger organisation looking for a charity to sponsor next year? We always value the opportunity to work in partnership with businesses to organise sponsored activities and events. Events are a great opportunity to have some fun and raise the funds we need to offer the services that local brain injured people need and deserve.

Whilst the average local business is unlikely to have specialist expertise on brain injury you may also have core skills in marketing, finance or HR that would be very valuable to us. There are a myriad of ways you can support our work and also develop your staff teams in the process. In return we can provide staff workshops and talks, employee team days and support in organising fundraising activities and events. Please get in touch with us if you would like to find out more about our current needs and opportunities.

Events and activities

We also organise our own events and activities throughout the year which provide numerous opportunities to get involved. To find out about our forthcoming events follow us on TWITTER and Facebook


Leaving a legacy in your will to support the future work of the organisation is an increasingly popular way that individuals can contribute to future of their favourite charities. If you would like to make arrangements to leave a legacy to Headway Derby we recommend you speak to your Solicitor about a codicil. A codicil is a supplement to a will that allows amendments or additions, without the need to completely re-write it.
