Friends of Headway membership scheme

As a charity, Headway is only able to provide the information and services that it does through the generous help of our supporters. You can show your support by joining the Friends of Headway membership scheme. You will be kept up-to-date on the work of the charity, while supporting brain injury survivors, their families and carers throughout the UK.

There are three categories of Friends of Headway:

  • Standard annual membership: £30 per year
  • Special rate annual membership for brain injury survivors/carers and/or students : £20 per year
  • Lifetime membership: £300 single payment

How your support helps

By becoming a Friend of Headway you will be helping Headway UK provide essential services to brain injury survivors, their families and carers throughout the UK.

For example, £30 can run the freephone confidential helpline for an hour.  This essential service is available to anyone with a question about brain injury - whether a survivor, carer, family member or professional working in the field of brain injury.

£20 can provide 10 copies of one of our BMA award-winning booklets which provide valuable information about brain injury.

If you choose to become a lifetime Friend of Headway, your £300 will cover three family training sessions, providing self-help techniques and coping strategies for brain injury survivors, their families and carers.

Your support helps Headway to continue to provide these essential services.
