New Headway Oxfordshire Connecting Carers events announced

brain-made-of-hands

 

Ever since it’s founding nearly 30 years ago Headway Oxfordshire has dedicated itself to supporting people affected by acquired brain injury across Oxfordshire.

Over that 30 years we know first hand that it’s not just the person who suffers the brain injury whose life is changed forever. Husband’s, wives, daughters, sons and friends and families  lives are also affected fundamentally in an instance.

So respite for carers families and friends has always been at the centre of everything we do, and with that it in mind we have come up with a program of events for carers under the banner Headway Oxfordshire Connecting Carers, a regular line-up of social, advice and educational events where you can meet fellow carers, swap experiences and advice, and learn more about your loved one’s condition in special sessions with our highly experienced community workers and personal assistants.

It’s also your opportunity to find how Headway Oxfordshire can support you and the services we offer.
