About Headway Somerset
We provide services and support across Somerset to adults with an acquired brain injury and their families. Our services start at the point an individual is in hospital through our hospital liaison service which provides critical support to individuals and more often to partners and families. Rehabilitation is provided by trained staff and a band of committed volunteers through four centres and can also be delivered through one –to-one outreach. We also have volunteering opportunities for befriending.
