Stephen McAleese Outstanding Contribution to Headway Award 2019

Thu 05 Dec 2019

Once a year, Headway's members, friends and supporters come together to pay tribute to some very special people: brain injury survivors, carers, volunteers and campaigners whose personal achievements have earned the admiration of everyone around them. Their stories are moving and inspirational.

The Stephen McAleese Outstanding Contribution to Headway Award, sponsored by No5 Barristers Chambers, honours the inspirational people who have dedicated their lives to supporting the charity. Our finalists represent thousands of others across the UK who day-in, day-out demonstrate admirable determination to prove that there can be life after brain injury.
