Kayley, Therapy Manger at Voyage Care said:

"I recently attended the Headway Goal Setting Training to help support me in my role as Therapy Manager for a brain injury provider. The course was really informative and allowed me to think about how we can capture the values of the people we support in a way that is important to them but also ensure that the goals we are setting are not only meaningful to the individuals but are captured in a way that they can understand.”
