ABOUT HEADWAY IRELAND

Since 1985, Headway Ireland has provided support to people who have experienced brain injury. Starting initially as a support group formed by family members and concerned professionals, Headway began providing services in the early 1990s. Services initially were geared towards supporting people returning to work following brain injury. Since that time, services have expanded to include a full range of rehabilitation supports including training, day services, psychological support and an information helpline.
