Headway Thames Valley client, Christina, on her brain injury. We will be sharing more from Christina and some of our other clients during Action for Brain Injury Week.


Our ABI Week campaign in 2017 will put brain injury survivors, carers and families right at its heart – inviting them to share how brain injury has impacted their lives.

A New Me will provide a platform for people to creatively share their experiences in order to challenge misperceptions of brain injury while demonstrating the value of having access to the right help, at the right time, such as the support provided by Headway Thames Valley and other frontline services.


We know that brain injury is generally misunderstood, while those whose effects are largely hidden can struggle to get the help and support they need.


Tell us how brain injury affects you and be part of ABI Week.

In the lead-up to ABI Week we’re keen to find out about your experiences of life after brain injury, and also what the phrase ‘a new me’ means to you.


We are inviting anyone affected by brain injury – whether you’re a Headway Thames Valley client, family member or carer – to get involved.


Some of our clients are already working on art projects, poems and short stories with their brain injuries in mind and we will be releasing their stories throughout Action for Brain Injury Week
