As an independent charity Headway Somerset is responsible for raising all the funds we need to keep providing our vital services for brain injury survivors and their support networks across Somerset.

Some of the costs of operating our charity are funded by income earnt through delivering our Rehabilitation Services (Somerset County Council, Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group, personal budget and private funding) however, only some people with an acquired brain injury are eligible to receive statutory support.

Our Talking Headway Helpline, peer support groups and education workshops are so important to fill this gap, and we can only continue providing these by raising £150,000 every year through charitable donations, events, fundraising, grants and corporate support and sponsorship.

Headway Somerset is extremely grateful for the support we have received over the past twelve months from the following organisations:

Somerset County Council

NHS Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group
