What we do: <

Brain injury can challenge every aspect of your life – walking, talking, thinking, and feeling – and the losses can be severe and permanent. It can mean losing both the life you once lived and the person you once were.

We all think "it will never happen to me", but every year around 350,000 are admitted to hospital with an acquired brain injury. That’s one every 90 seconds.

Headway is the UK-wide charity that works to improve life after brain injury by providing vital support and information services, including:

Headway also works to reduce the incidence of brain injury and actively campaigns for better standards and awareness. In addition, the charity supports over 125 groups and branches who provide support for those affected by brain injury within their local areas.

With the help of Headway’s London Marathon heroes, the charity can continue to provide and expand these life-changing services across the UK.
