Description Aims and Objectives

A brain injury can happen to anyone, at any age, at any time. One cause is a blow to the head - in an accident, for example. Or you could have a stroke or haemorrhage, even at a young age. Or you could have a brain tumour removed.

Headway Guernsey provides information, support and services to adults, and their families, who are living with the long-term effects of a brain injury.

Headway Guernsey aims to:

-        ensure that no-one in the Bailiwick has to go though this life-shattering experience on their own.
-        raise awareness of brain injury and the effects of this ‘hidden disability’.
-        provide information and mutual support to people with a brain injury, and their families.
-        organise activities to help people who have become socially isolated after a brain injury to learn new skills, make new friends and increase in confidence.

Headway Guernsey offers information and mutual support to survivors, and their families, plus a programme of physical and cognitive modules, social events and information evenings. Our dream, in the long term, is to create a Headway House – a social centre where people can come during the day to regain their confidence and relearn old skills in an environment where the effects of brain injury are completely understood.

Headway Guernsey is based at:

        KGV Playing Fields,
        Rue Cohu,
        Castel,
        Guernsey.
        GY5 7SZ 

        Telephone: (01481) 252589

Organisation and Management

The charity is run on a day to day level by the Executive team, comprising 4 part time staff. They, in turn, report to a Board of Trustees. Activities at Headway House are run by the staff, assisted by a team of volunteers.

Whilst benefiting from affiliation to Headway UK, Headway Guernsey is an independent, Guernsey-registered, company limited by guarantee. All funds raised remain in the Bailiwick.

Headway receives no States funding and relies totally on the support of the local community, from corporate donations, fund-raising events, to individuals in the island.
