Welcome to Headway Bristol

We are a local charity with 40 years experience in helping survivors of brain injury live as independently as possible.

We provide social and cognitive rehabilitation for adults with brain injury and support and respite for their families through the services offered at our centres and through one to one outreach – available across Bristol, North and North East Somerset, and South Gloucestershire. We individually tailor programmes that are designed to maximise quality of life, independence and self esteem.

We promote an understanding of all aspects of brain injury, focusing not just on the impact on the individual but also on their families and others who care for them. We provide information, support and services for these people too, including assistance to source and access other much needed services.

We hope that you find the information on our website helpful, but if you would like any more information or have any questions, please give us a call on 0117 414 3222, or email us on
