As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, Headway are anticipating a potential drop of £2 million in income this year, but we are continuing to provide our vital services to those who need us now more than ever. So, we have been asking our valued corporate supporters for help in providing the Headway helpline service for a day with our Pay for a Day scheme.
Leading UK safety equipment manufacturers, Arco, have gone above and beyond by funding the helpline for a whole month! This incredible contribution will mean they will be helping, on average, just under 1,000 callers in need of emotional and practical support from our specialist helpline team.
Arco will be supporting people like Eleanor, who's husband Mark survived a blood clot on the brain:
"My sister was doing some research and told me about Headway. I rang the helpline who were fantastic. I got so much help from Headway's helpline and the charity's booklets. It has helped me learn so much about what Mark was going through and is a constant source of information and comfort.
This support comes as the beginning of an exciting strategic partnership between Headway and Arco, with a focus on bringing awareness of brain injury to the forefront of safety in the workplace. More information about Arco’s charity adoption of Headway will be announced soon.
David Evison, Managing Director at Arco commented “A brain injury can be life changing for a person and for those close to them, the Headway helpline provides vital specialist advice and support. We are proud to become a strategic partner with them and to be able to support them particularly during such challenging times.
We are so grateful to Arco for their generous support and look forward to working with them in the future, improving life after brain injury together.Back
