Who We Are 

Headway is an Irish registered charity and an internationally accredited brain injury services organisation that supports adults (18+) who are affected by brain injury. 

Our Mission 

Is to bring positive change in the lives of those affected by an acquired brain injury. 

Our Services 

Headway provides rehabilitation services for people living with Acquired Brain Injury. 

Our aim is to help you rebuild your life after a brain injury. We want to help you make the most of your potential, improve your quality of life and level of independence. We know that every person is unique and every brain injury is also unique. All Headway services are tailored to each individual, based on your need and your own goals for recovery.

The first step is to get a thorough understanding of your needs and strengths. From that initial assessment, we will put together a plan for a service to help you reach your goals. Teamwork is key to our approach. Our Headway staff from different disciplines will work together with you and your family to achieve your goals. 

We pride ourselves on the quality of our services. CARF International, the rehabilitation quality specialists, have accredited Headway services for Home and Community and Vocational Programs in the Brain Injury Speciality. This means that you can trust that the services within Headway are of the highest standards.
