Headway Birmingham & Solihull's services for people with ABI are unique in that it specialises in delivering a service tailored to suit the individual needs of brain injured people. We have a person centered approach which is based on each individual, their deficits and needs. We then identify what choices/services we can offer that best meet their specific requirements. All the services focus on the improvement and management of skills for each individual, from the moment they arrive each day, until they go home. Each person's care package is fully comprehensive and outcome based.

The services are available to people with acquired brain injury who will usually have completed formal clinical rehab (physio, OT etc). At this stage many people may still be unable to return to work, but are ready to start to re-integrate back into the community and may need continued development opportunities and support to do this.
