The Deputy Mayor of Guildford, Gordan Jackson, visited the charity Headway Surrey in Guildford today (February 25) to raise awareness of the difficulties facing people with brain injury throughout the county.

Mr Jackson met several brain injury survivors who were practising their information processing skills with the support of volunteers and staff.

He said: “I have been delighted to visit Headway Surrey and am extremely impressed with the important facilities and services that they provide their members. Yet another example of the huge contribution that the voluntary sector makes to sections of our community.”

Headway Surrey supports survivors with emotional, psychological and practical support both at its centre in Stoughton and in the community, as well as supporting carers through monthly meetings throughout Surrey.

A spokesperson from the charity said: “Although brain injury can happen to anyone at any time it is often thought of as the invisible disability because they ‘don’t look disabled’.”
