Rebuilding lives after brain injury across Berkshire and South Oxfordshire

Headway Thames Valley is a charity based in Henley-on-Thames helping people to live life after brain injury in Berkshire and South Oxfordshire.

There are many possible causes of brain injury, including a fall, a road accident, sports injury, tumour, stroke, cardiac arrest, complications during operations and post viral infections such as meningitis.

4,000

people suffer some form of Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) in the Thames Valley each year

11

people admitted to hospital with a brain injury in Oxfordshire every day

81%

higher risk of suicide among brain injury survivors

A brain injury can challenge every aspect of your life – the way you walk, talk, think and feel

All the activities and support we offer aim to help people to regain lost skills, learn something new, build confidence and independence, provide practical advice on returning to work, establish routines, and deal with new challenges.

“I have no memory of the accident at all and no post-accident memory for the first couple of months – my memory is still very odd and I don’t think it will ever be the same but I cope and I have found ways to cope not only on my own but with the support of Headway Thames Valley.”

Gi, client of Headway Thames Valley

“Attending the ‘Living with Brain Injury’ group has been extremely beneficial to me. Meeting others who are experiencing the same changes in life as me and learning to cope with change has helped me tremendously.”

Emma, ex-client of Headway Thames Valley
