HRH Prince Harry to launch new brain injury initiative

Thu 13 Jul 2017

HRH Prince Henry of Wales is to launch a new initiative from UK-wide brain injury charity Headway. The charity’s Brain Injury Identity Card will help the police identify brain injury survivors and ensure they are given appropriate support when they come into contact with the criminal justice system.

The card also has the additional benefit of breaking down social exclusion, with card holders having renewed confidence in the knowledge that they can easily explain their support needs should they require assistance in everyday situations.

Peter McCabe, Chief Executive of Headway, said: “We are delighted that Prince Harry has generously agreed to support this important project.”

The launch will take place at the home of Headway Suffolk, which is part of the charity’s network of around 130 groups and branches across the UK, on Thursday 20 July.

The launch of the Justice Project is kindly supported by CMC Markets – a leading global provider of spread betting, CFDs, forex and binaries.

Information for the press

The event on the day will be covered by the Royal Rota. For further details on how to apply for accreditation, please contact James Coxon on press.manager@headway.org.uk

Pre-recorded interviews (with a broadcast/print embargo of 20 July) and post-event interviews with brain injury survivors with experience of having the effects of their brain injury misunderstood can be arranged.

In addition, Peter McCabe, Chief Executive of Headway, is also available for interview.

For Headway interview requests, please contact James Coxon on 0115 947 1901 or press.manager@headway.org.uk.
