Welcome to Headway Cardiff and South East Wales

Providing support to over 500 people every year

We are a small local charity working in South Wales which support 500 – 600 people each year who have been affected by an acquired brain injury (ABI).

From our base in Llandough Hospital, our aim is to help people adjust to the life changing effects of ABI, minimising the negative emotional and practical consequences and maximising independence, wellbeing, health and quality of life.

About Headway Cardiff and South East Wales

We began in 1985 as a support group for people with ABI and their families, so they could have continued peer support and be less isolated on their return to their local communities.

Growing slowly from these small beginnings, people with ABI and their families remain at the core of our organisation, with representatives sitting on our board of trustees.
