Headway Hertfordshire - supporting people affected by brain injury

Programmes and Support Groups


Headway Hertfordshire provides a range of support services for anyone affected by acquired brain injury. Details of our main services are provided below. Please get in touch to learn more.


General Support

Our Support Coordinators are the first point of contact with Headway Hertfordshire and will support you whenever you need it. They will visit you to get to know you and understand the help that you are looking for. They will refer you on to our groups or to other appropriate services. They will stay in touch and are happy to hear from you if your needs change in the future. To meet a Support Coordinator and begin to get to know Headway Hertfordshire  contact us.


Peer Support Groups

Headway Hertfordshire's Peer Support Groups provide opportunities for people with an acquired brain injury and their carers to come together to offer each other support and share experiences over a cup of coffee. Most groups meet fortnightly. They are led by our experienced volunteers with the support of our Support Coordinator team. Peer Support Groups meet in St Albans, Borehamwood, Hemel Hempstead, Hertford, Letchworth, Stevenage and Watford and Welwyn. To join in, please  contact us.


HABIT (Helping Acquired Brain Injury Together)

HABIT is a much praised one year programme designed and delivered by our own specialist occupational therapists. They work with groups and on a 1:1 basis to help all participants achieve their aims which might be a return to work, volunteering, education or other meaningful activity. If you are interested in learning more please contact us.


Support for Carers

We organise support groups for carers to share their experiences with people who understand. These take place approximately four times a year. We also provide training to give carers a stronger understanding of ABI and strategies for dealing with some of the difficulties they may face. To find out more please contact us.


Social Events

Headway Hertfordshire clients enjoy occasional events such as outings, lunch clubs or fundraisers from time to time.
