Why become a Friend of Headway Surrey?
There are over 7,000 acquired brain injury admissions to Surrey hospitals every year and our charity provides a pathway for victims to thrive with their acquired condition. Our help doesn’t just stop there and we extend a warm welcome to friends and families so that they too can support their loved ones with this life-changing event.
Whilst most of our services are free, we will be able to offer you so much more if you become a friend. The programme is just in its infancy and our very first webinar was well received by our attendees. We want to build on this success by bringing you more webinars as well as providing timely updates on brain injury and dedicated training sessions. You can also meet fellow friends at our coffee mornings or join us for a fun game of Pictionary or even a quiz on Fridays – a great way to cap off the week with some healthy competition.
By helping us to help you, it means we can provide all this and more. Here are just some of the activities:
- Answering your calls to the helpline, advice, information, a listening ear and care
- Preparing and delivering workshops.
- Art and brain injury education
- Preparing and delivering Zoom sessions (Wednesday Coffee morning, Friday Friends and Family/Carers Support Sessions).
- Helping a survivor to obtain an essential brain injury ID Card.
- Helping with benefit applications or re-assessments.
- Work packs for workshops and zoom sessions.
- Zoom Post Covid-19 support group
- Staging information webinars.
On joining we will send you an eye-catching pin. Whilst we hope you wear your badge with pride, we will continue to proudly uphold the highest level of care to victims and our family and friends.
