Headway Surrey (based in Stoughton) supports people who have suffered brain injuries. It has an open day on Friday, October 13, from 10am to 4pm, for people to see the work it does.

Headway Surrey says that every 90 seconds someone is admitted to a UK hospital with a head injury, and adds: “Here is a  special chance to come and see inside, you never know when you might need our services.  

“We cover the whole of Surrey and offer face-to-face services, and online sessions.  

“Come and have a look around, we will have a display of some of our work and activities, some art and some of the tools that we use to help people to rebuild their cognition and executive skills.

“Meet the hospital link workers who visit surrounding hospitals to support those admitted with a brain injury and their families.

“Meet the joint CEOs, rehab co-ordinators and assistants and trustees, and find out just what we do and if we can help you, or alternatively if you can help us.

Headway Surrey is at Headway House, 21 North Road, Guildford, Surrey GU2 9PU.

Headway Surrey’s joint CEO, Sonja Freebody, says: “Please come and have a look around. You might be a professional who wants to know more, you may be a person with a brain injury, or perhaps you are looking after someone. You might be looking for a local volunteering opportunity.”

Headway Surrey is at Headway House, 21 North Road, Guildford, Surrey GU2 9PU.  

No booking required, just turn up. Free entry. There are five parking spaces directly outside the office and there is free on road parking along North Road, Stoughton Road and Cardwell’s Keep. Refreshments will be available (tea, coffee, cake and biscuits). Donations welcome.
