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.
