Headway Ennisrone is a Branch of Headway UK that is run by volunteers who all have either professional or personal experience of the effects of living with acquired brain injury.
Brain Injury is a condition which changes the lives, not only of those who suffer the injury, but also, their families.
The brain is a very complex organ and different parts of it control different elements of the way we operate, for example, speech, memory and sight. The symptoms of brain injury are therefore determined by which parts of the brain have been damaged.
Families take most of the strain, the burden of care can place the family unit under severe pressure.
Headway promotes wider understanding of all aspects of brain injury and provides information, support and social activities for people with brain injury, their families and carers. Headway also campaigns at National and local level for improved resources and facilities for brain injury survivors.
First Monday of the month, offering emotional, practical support and understanding; providing you with opportunities to meet with other people who have had similar experiences.
We organise a number of social activities throughout the year in additon to our monthly meetings which include barbeques, social evenings and seasonal events.
We also offer a number of day activites such as watersports, off roading, drifting throughout the year.For those that are not adrenaline junkies we also provide a numberof relaxation and pampering days such as spa breaks, yoga and hollistic therapy days.
We also offer a number or residential breaks throughout the year also offering direct and indirect respite over 3/4 day breaks.
