We offer a variety of services for carers – which can be accessed as much or as little as needed.  Carers can dip in and out as their needs change.  It may be that Headway Bristol does not actually deliver all of these services itself – but can signpost and refer to other relevant and appropriate organisations.  If a carer is receiving positive support, they will be gaining the skills and knowledge and strength they need in order to cope with the changes in their family.  This in turn will have a positive effect on the person with the brain injury.  And just taking the time out for themselves will on its own act as respite.

Our Services are:

  • Crisis advice & support – people can come to our centre, drop into the Resource Library or book a one-to-one appointment.  Alternatively, we can visit people on hospital wards or in their homes.
  • Signposting and onward referral to other appropriate organisations
  • Resource library – see Support Section
  • One to one support – either drop-in or telephone or face to face
  • Access to one to one counselling
  • Drop-in groups
  • Support with Independent Living
  • Providing invaluable respite for families and carers of people with brain injury
