Headway Birmingham & Solihull - Improving life after Brain Injury


 Our Specialist Acquired Brain Injury Service is designed to give brain injured people the opportunity to re-learn lost skills as well as prevent any further deteriorating or isolation. 

This can be done by learning coping strategies, modifying inappropriate behaviour, acquiring new skills and interests, meeting with other brain injured people, understanding their brain injury, improving self confidence and accessing community activities.

  • Ensure training materials are reviewed / updated and new session plans introduced.

  • Update records after sessions.Produce report and feedback as required, ensuring confidentiality and discretion
