Services over Christmas

A snowy picture taken by Sharon, a Headway clientFor many of us Christmas is a time to relax and spend time with loved ones. But Christmas can be a very challenging time for people with brain injuries and although Headway Devon’s day centres will be closed for the period, our dedicated Community Support Team will continue to provide support and care to the people who need it most.

From helping people to get up in the mornings, to preparing meals and providing some welcome company, our one-to-one Community Support Workers will be making a real difference to local people with brain injuries and helping to ensure that they are able to remain at home and stay safe for the festive season.

Headway Devon, and the people we support, are very grateful for the support and dedication of the staff members who are working over this period.
