Providing support & rehabilitation to people with acquired brain injuries in Cornwall
We are open on a Wednesday in Lostwithiel and a Thursday in Redruth.
Following government advice related to the protection of vulnerable communities, it is with a heavy heart that Headway Cornwall has temporarily closed our day centres and suspended face to face activities until further notice.
We understand that this decision may come as a disappointment to some but the well-being of our clients, volunteers, carers, families and staff will always be our main priority.
We will endeavour to remain in contact with our clients via telephone, and will inform people once we are able to open our doors once again.
HOW HEADWAY CORNWALL CAN HELP
Our service aims to assist our attendees to increase their self-esteem, self-confidence, mental and emotional well being, relieve stress and isolation, and to encourage physical rehabilitation. There are opportunities to widen their horizons, try new hobbies and learn new skills.
- We provide meaningful activity and support at our two main centres in Lostwithiel and Scorrier.
- Drop-in facilities for clients, family members and carers at all of our centres.
- Telephone and online support, information and advice.
- Home and hospital visits
HOW YOU CAN HELP US
Your support powers our service. Every pound raised or minute of your time given helps us make a massive difference to the lives of brain injury survivors, their families and carers.
If you are interested in joining our team of volunteers, we would love to hear from you. We have centres operating in the Lostwithiel and Redruth areas. Training and DBS checks will be provided and we are happy to pay reasonable travel expenses.
If you are looking to donate or fund-raise for us, please visit our Support Us page for more information on the many ways you can help.
The Support Us page also includes info on our plans for "Headway House", a dedicated rehabilitation centre here in Cornwall.

As part of the launch of Comic Relief 2019, the BBC came to our Scorrier centre to see how we are using the funding to help people in Cornwall dealing with acquired brain injuries.
There was a real buzz of excitement and those that were interviewed and featured had a wonderful time in front of the cameras
