Headway Annual Awards

When: Thursday 5th December 2024, 12:00 noon 
Where: JW Marriott Grosvenor House, London

The Headway Annual Awards are back and this year we’re heading to the elegant 5-star JW Marriott Grosvenor House, London.

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 Grosvenor Hotel on Thursday 5th December 2024.

Do you know someone you would like to nominate?

Someone who has defied their brain injury to achieve a great milestone this year?
Someone who often goes above and beyond when caring for someone with a brain injury?
A long-standing Headway volunteer who is overdue public recognition and thanks?

We don’t know the person you’re nominating, so don’t spare the details – or your feelings about how special they are!

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.
