Coffee Morning Social
Coffee Mornings are currently on Wednesdays 11am-12noon online using Zoom.
Survivors of brain injury are welcome and you can be as active in the session as you wish, or you can quietly listen to the conversations going on. You are welcome to take part yourself or if it easier, you can invite a member of your family or carer. Come and enjoy a coffee and biscuit whilst taking part from the comfort of your own home.
The group is split into 2 breakout rooms and you choose which room you prefer.
Main Coffee Room - Peer Support Chat, Guest Speakers, Pictionary.
Peer Support Chat - discussions on brain injury and what you or the group are going through at that moment in time (good and bad things). You will realise you are not alone. Everyone helps everyone with advice, stories and encouragement.
Guest Speakers - this could be anything and we are always looking for new speakers.
Pictionary - a secret word is sent to one person and they draw it. Everyone else guesses what it is. We do this online via Zoom. If you have not done it before, don't worry we can teach you really quickly. None of us could do it at first!
Crossword Group Room - This is quite a quiet activity, however, excellent for stimulating the mind and being sociable. If you are a regular, we will provide you with a crossword book. If you are just an occasional attendee, we can post or email you a copy in advance. Everyone completes the same crossword together. When participants get stuck on a clue, they can ask for help and chat about the question and answer.
Please remember to join the Friends of Headway Surrey to help us fund the Coffee Morning. It's only £40 per year.

Brain Injury Education Workshops
Education workshops aim to help the understanding of how brain injury affects a person’s thinking skills.
One to one individual or group sessions
We offer one to one education sessions on zoom for individuals or family groups to educate and support on individual issues.
Brain Injury ID Card
The Card is designed to help the general public and Police to more easily identify brain injury survivors and ensure that they receive an appropriate response and support.
A safe space to enable change without judgement where each person can explore and discuss their issues.
Community support is focused upon an individual’s unique needs, goals and aspirations; our aim is to maximise a person’s potential and allow them to live as independently as possible.
Family and Carers Support
Family, close friends and carers are important and need their own space and time to deal with the effects of being with and caring for someone with a brain injury.
Friday Friends Social and Walks
This is a FREE SERVICE and is available to anyone with an Acquired Brain Injury.
Professional Training and talks
We can provide tailored training to your staff or group. This can be a presentation on a particular topic or a question-and-answer session.
