Further information

Headway Omagh is a Branch of Headway UK and was established in July 2016. It is run by volunteers who all have personal experience of living with the effects of acquired brain injury. Brain injury is a condition which changes the lives, not only of those who suffer the injury, but also their families.

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.

How can Headway Omagh help you and your family?

We meet on the second Thursday of every month at The Silver Birch Hotel, 5 Gortin Road, Omagh, BT79 7DH from 7pm - 8:30pm.

Our support meetings provide brain injury survivors and their families with the opportunity to meet with other people who have had similar experiences, offering emotional and practical support and understanding.

Social Activities:

Our support meetings are highly social in themselves, we organise a number of social activities throughout the year including: barbeques, table quizzes, meals out and weekend breaks. We also offer residential breaks annually to our members,

Information and training:

We provide free access for all our members to Headway UK training on a variety of subjects such as Understanding Brain Injury and Coping with Challenging Behaviour.

We also engage speakers throughout the year to give talks on issues such as Benefits Advice and other Carer's issues.

How do I become a member?

Headway Omagh welcomes all new members: Brain Injury Survivors, Carers, Families and Volunteers.
