Trevor Sterling: Excited to be New Chair of Headway West London

I was delighted to be nominated as the new Chair of Headway West London.  I have a hard act to follow as Kate Woodward-Nutt has done an excellent job with all committee members in ensuring that Headway West London has be able to continue to support Brain Injury Survivors and their families over the last 5 years. Happily Kate has agreed to continue to support Headway West London albeit in a different capacity. Our thanks go to Kate for all her efforts.

Headway West London currently provides two monthly support groups, one in Fulham and one in Ealing, for anyone whose life has been changed following brain injury. We welcome both those who have experienced a brain injury and the family, friends and carers of people with a brain injury. The support groups are run by volunteers and led by health care professionals.

As well as a varied programme of activities and speakers the groups offer the opportunity for people to chat about their experiences with others who understand what it is like living with a brain injury. The friendly, informal atmosphere enables the members to give and receive support in a relaxed environment. The groups also provide information about various aspects of brain injury and can signpost people to other sources of information and support. We also have our usual Circle of Support where members can share their concerns, challenges and successes.

Our aim is to build on the services we currently provide, the committee has some exciting ideas which will allow us to provide even more support and we very much look forward to the opportunity of helping our existing members and indeed reaching and welcoming new members.

Details about our Support Groups are set out below. The group also produces a monthly newsletter.
