To mark the final day of Action for Brain Injury (ABI) Week 2018, the team wore their #HatsForHeadway in support of the popular Twitter campaign led by Headway, the brain injury association.

The campaign aimed to raise vital funds for the charity and increase awareness of brain injury - something that cannot be achieved without the help and support from volunteers and donations.  This year, #HatsforHeadway Day 2018 had a royal twist to celebrate the royal wedding which took place at the weekend.

Headway offer support to people living with brain injury, and to those affected by someone who has brain injury.  The charity has a strong network of more than 125 groups and branches across the UK.  To find your local support group please visit https://www.headway.org.uk/ .

A recent study by Headway has shown the positive impact relationships can have on helping to rebuild people’s lives following brain injury.  The study, conducted as part of Headway’s You, me and brain injury found:

We continue to act for individuals who have suffered brain injury through no fault of their own so we understand the life-changing impact of the damage that such injuries cause.  We fully appreciate how these injuries can have a significant physical and psychological effect and the extent to which support is required from organisations like Headway.

To show our support for the vital work that Headway undertake, here is a photograph of the team wearing their #HatsForHeadway.

There are many ways to get involved and support Headway.  Recently, members of the Personal Injury team supported The Green Backyard project.   However, there are other ways to get involved.  For more information follow @HeadwayUK on Twitter.

Remember, if you did wear your hat for Headway during ABI Week then don’t forget to text 'HFHW18 £1' to 70070 to make your donation.
