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 Walks - once a month
Held at a different location every month eg. Godalming, Woking, Guildford, other locations coming soon. It is usually about 1 mile on a flat but sometimes sloping path with the opportunity for a refreshment stop, so it is suitable for those with walking aids.
The staff and volunteers will be there to meet you from 10.30am for 10.45am start. Finishing at approximately 12noon. If you are unable to manage the walk but would like to meet us at the refreshment stop for a spot of socialising, we can try to accommodate. The locations we pick normally have free parking, disabled parking, public toilets, seating and refreshment facilities.
The Walking Group is suitable for survivors, family, friends, their children and well behaved dogs.
