The Headway Annual Awards celebrate the inspirational achievements of people living with brain injury and the dedication of those working to support them.
Each finalist, chosen by a selection panel, will be invited along with a guest to a glittering luncheon at The InterContinental Park Lane in London on Friday 6 December.
Do you know someone who has defied their brain injury to achieve a great milestone this year? Or perhaps you know someone that often goes above and beyond when caring for someone with a brain injury? Or maybe you know of a long-standing Headway volunteer who is overdue public recognition and thanks?
The categories this year are:
- Alex Richardson Achiever of the Year sponsored by Slater & Gordon Lawyers
- Carer of the Year sponsored by Barr Ellison Solicitors
- Volunteer of the Year sponsored by Anthony Gold
- Stephen McAleese Outstanding Contribution to Headway Award sponsored by No5 Barristers Chambers

- Give us details. How long have they been a volunteer? How much progress have they made since sustaining their injury? What have they sacrificed to care for someone?
- Set the scene. How did life change? What was life like before? Why does your nominee stand out from the crowd?
- More is more! Keep your information relevant and catchy, but don’t hold back. The more information we have, the better.
