Our History

The history of Headway Somerset is also a personal story of a family – of parents who over thirty years ago experienced the devastating news that their daughter had received a serious head injury in an accident. Following a long period in hospital there was a return home to Somerset where the family quickly realised that there was little or no community support for their daughter or for them. Thanks to this energy and resourcefulness of this family and a small group of friends and supporters Headway Somerset was born.

2020 was our 30th Anniversary Year and an opportunity to look back on the development of our organisation, to recognise how far we have come and especially say a huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to our story – whether staff past or present, volunteers, trustees, funders, friends and supporters and of course the people who use our services.
