Every day Headway Birmingham & Solihull supports people facing the uncertainty of a brain injury: How long will the effects last? Will I still be able to work? What does this mean for my husband, wife, daughter, son?  Now, more than ever, we need people like you to support our work and make sure that no one is left to deal with the effects of brain injury alone.

We couldn’t run our services without the generosity of our fundraisers.

If you’d like to do something  to improve life after brain injury, there are plenty of ways for you to fundraise.

Fundraising is a fantastic excuse for bringing people together in the name of a great cause. The more fun you have, the more money you will raise.
