What’s New?

This May sees Action for Brain Injury Week 2019 beginning on Monday 20th May.

On Thursday 23rd May it’s our annual conference with this year’s theme of Brain Injury in the Elderly & People with Dementia. It’s a full day of interesting presentations focusing on ABI, dementia and the aging brain. Keynote speaker is Professor Louise Allan, Professor of Geriatric Medicine at the University of Exeter speaking about post stroke dementia. We also have presentations about lived experience of dementia, scams and rogue traders and the vulnerable, and an OT perspective. For booking forms and further details, please click here.

Friday 24th May is Hats for Headway Day. An opportunity to raise awareness and funds to support people living with an acquired brain injury. It’s super easy to take part. Simply wear a hat for the day and donate £2 to Headway Devon. If you’d like to sign up your school, club or organisation, simply fill in our #HatsforHeadway pledge.
