"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 info@headwaylincolnshire.org.uk
