Welcome to Headway Cardiff

Over the last thirty years the number of people living with the effects of an acquired brain injury has increased dramatically.

More people are surviving brain injuries owing to the advances in medical knowledge and surgical techniques.  Survivors of a brain injury generally have a normal life expectancy.  This means that there are an ever-increasing number of people living with the long-term effects of brain injury.

It is estimated that across the UK there are over 500,000 people (aged 16-74) living with disabilities as a result of brain injury.

Headway Cardiff was established nearly 30 years ago to provide support to survivors and their families and to help them cope with the often devastating changes that occur following brain injury.
