Headway Leicester provides support and services to people with an acquired or traumatic brain injury living in Leicestershire, Leicester or Rutland. We provide Outreach services and a city based Day service 5 days a week. Volunteers, supported by staff, will encourage, assist and support members who have a brain injury in their activity. These activities can include arts & crafts (card making, drawing, beadwork, jewellery, pottery, dough, batik), cookery, computers (internet, paintshop, card design, poetry, training, games), education (Maths, English, I.T.), gardening (vegetables, flowers, maintenance, planting), woodwork (carpentry, pyrography, turning, picture frames), games (board games, memory games, chess, dominoes, jigsaws) and social & recreational events & outings. Encouraging members to help with shopping and making lunch would also be involved, this is very important in helping people to re-learn lost skills. People attending Headway may have a range of disabilities and/or sensory needs.
