As an independent charity Headway Somerset is responsible for raising all the funds we need to keep providing our support services for people with acquired brain injury and their relatives across Somerset.

About 45% of the cost of running Headway Somerset comes from fee income (Somerset County Council, Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group, personal budget and private funding)

Not all our clients are eligible to receive statutory support.

Other services we provide depend on charitable donations, events, fundraising, grants and corporate support and sponsorship.

Somerset County Council
