New brain injury support service launched in Spalding
People affected by brain injury in Spalding and surrounding areas are invited to come along to a coffee morning which local brain injury charity Headway Lincolnshire is holding during Action for Brain Injury Week (May 20-26).
The coffee morning is to celebrate the new support service run by the charity, which will be held at Tonic Health in Spalding on every first Wednesday of each month, starting in June.
The event will be held at Tonic Health, on Wednesday, May 22, between 10am and noon, to celebrate the opening of the charity's new Social Support Group, which will provide monthly support meetings, regular social activities, carer support, advice and guidance on issues relating to brain injury.
"We are delighted with this opportunity to reach out to more people in the Spalding area affected by brain injury," said Victoria Stevenson, chair of trustees at Headway Lincolnshire.
"There is a clear need for a support service in Spalding that provides a vital lifeline to brain injury survivors and their families, both on a short- and long-term basis, and we would like to thank everyone who has supported us so far to make this new service a reality.
"Brain injury can happen to anyone, at any time, and we want people to know where they can turn for support when it does. At Headway Lincolnshire, we know that with the right support, at the right time, there can be life after brain injury.
"So whether you have personal experience of brain injury or simply want to find out more about the subject and what you can do to support local people affected, please feel very welcome to come along and find out more about Headway Lincolnshire."
Anyone wishing to get involved or for support after brain injury is welcome to come along and find out more about Headway Lincolnshire by contacting Ann-Marie Smith on 07546592526 or e-mail email@example.com
