What we do
Headway Surrey supports adults in Surrey over the age of 18 with acquired and traumatic brain injury and support their families too. We exist to ensure that when a person’s life is turned upside down by brain injury, they get the help and support they need and deserve. We have been providing these services since 1985.
A range of specialist services are offered from our base in Guildford and for those that have travel restrictions or prefer online, we provide Zoom and satellite hubs throughout Surrey.
We support people with brain injuries to come to terms with what has happened and overcome their disabilities, as well as providing support and advice to their families and carers and training and information for local professionals.
Your injury may be from a stroke, meningitis, encephalitis, tumour, aneurysms, road traffic accident, sporting accident, work injury, assault, trip, fall or slip etc. Whatever the cause, it is our aim to help you live well with your brain injury and achieve your potential, whatever that may be.
We are small, caring, compassionate and passionate about helping you.

How you can help us
Friday Drop In or Walks - 3rd Friday every month
Drop in to our centre in Guildford and see our lovely centre and garden. Meet the staff and volunteers. Meet other adults who have an acquired or traumatic brain injury. Have a coffee, chat, play board games and other activities. 10.30am-12 noon. Some people come on their own and others bring a friend, carer or family member. All welcome. No dogs, sorry.
We will also occasionally change the Drop In to a Walk somewhere in Surrey. About 1 mile, normally level paths (or as level as possible), accessible for wheels, free parking, disabled parking, public toilets, seating and refreshment facilities, so bring some money. We will meet at 10.30am for a 10.45am start and finish at approximately 12noon. If you would just like to meet us for some fresh air at the refreshment stop for a spot of socialising, then we can let you know our approximate arrival time. The Walking Group is suitable for those with an acquired brain injury, family, friends, carers, their children and well behaved dogs (on leads).
We are always looking for volunteers - if you are interested then please get in touch.
