Campaigns

One of Headway's objectives is to campaign to increase awareness and reduce incidence of brain injury. 

This section provides information on some of our key campaigns, from our annual Action for Brain Injury Week campaign to concussion in sport, funding cuts and supporting GPs

We update our campaigns regularly, so keep coming back for more information!


You, Me, and Brain Injury

You, Me, and Brain Injury highlights the fact that brain injury doesn’t just affect the individual, but also their family, friends, colleagues, and many more relationships besides.

Right First Time

The Right First Time campaign is calling on the government to bring in changes to the disability benefit assessments which currently fail a large number of brain injury survivors and their families.

A New Me

A New Me provides a platform for people to creatively share their experiences in order to challenge misperceptions of brain injury while demonstrating the value of having access to the right help, at the right time.

Caring for Carers

The effects of brain injury can be just as devastating for families as it is for individuals. It can change relationships in an instant, turning partners into carers and transforming the lives of entire families.

Be Concussion Aware

At Headway, we want to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy sport, while being better protected from the risks of concussion.

Cycle safety

Don't cut me out!

The false economy of funding cuts: Brain injury survivors need help to rebuild their lives, but funding cuts are cutting them out of society.

See how we're campaigning against the cuts


Supporting GPs

Headway has launched a campaign and created an online resource to help doctors to diagnose, manage and refer patients affected by brain injury.

It is vitally important that every A&E department across the UK provides the information recommended by NICE to all head injury patients.
