Mission and Aims

 

Mission Statement:

To promote understanding of all aspects of brain injury and to provide information, support and services to people with brain injury, their families and carers.

Our Aims:

Headway Swindon is committed to making a positive change in the lives of people with a brain injury, their families and their carers by providing help, information and ongoing support.

We listen to those with brain injuries to find out what’s important to them and then provide a tailored Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy programme of tasks and activities to help them achieve their goals.

At Headway Swindon, people with brain injuries come first and are valued and respected. We are committed to helping each and every one reach their full potential so that they can be themselves and live as independent lives as possible.

We believe that all brain injuries matter – no injury is too slight to ignore or too severe to lose hope. Everyone recovers at their own pace and some people can continue to develop new pathways in their brain for many years after injury.

Headway Swindon is committed to raising public and professional awareness of acquired brain injury and the needs of people with brain injuries, their families and their carers.

Our Vision:

To operate a non-residential rehabilitation centre in Swindon for adults who have acquired brain injury in order to maximise independence and quality of life.

To be recognised as the regional centre of excellence for cognitive rehabilitation offering the latest techniques and programmes available.

To be the leading community support agency for advice and support regarding all aspects of brain injury.

To offer a full programme of support and information to carers and families of brain injury survivors.

To be active in the community raising awareness of brain injury and the impact it has on people’s lives.
