Stewarts has partnered with Headway East London to support the Family Support Groups for the coming year.
The Family Support Groups form part of Headway East London’s Casework service which helps support families and survivors of brain injury at the beginning of their journey in hospital. The groups facilitate an essential space for survivors of brain injuries, family members and carers to come together, share experiences and help each other.
They provide a perfect setting to meet Headway staff members and access Headway’s advocacy service to receive information about welfare benefits, health services, social care services and housing issues.
Headway East London currently runs three free monthly groups in Hackney, Waltham Forest and Havering, and welcome all living within their catchment area to attend.
Sean Kinahan, Casework Manager at Headway East London says:
“Getting support from Stewarts for this service is fantastic as it will allow us to continue reaching survivors, families and carers in the wider community. As our services expand, we are making contact with more people looking for advice, support and information following their own, or a loved ones, brain injury.”
“We hope to extend this support even further in the future, and backing from Stewarts will most certainly bring us closer to that goal”.
Stephanie Clarke, Partner at Stewarts says:
“It feels fitting that Stewarts are able to give something back to Headway by backing these support groups, a service that’s been used by our clients and their families over the years.
The team at Headway really are in it for the long haul, not just when a patient is discharged from hospital, and we’re proud to provide the means to enable those who need it to access this support group.”
