Headway update


We've added a lot of information to our website over the last few weeks, including some exciting news about our booklets, which are now free to download!

Here's a review of some of the latest news from Headway:

Award winning information now free for all

Each year, around 10,000 hard copies of the charity’s booklets are distributed, with almost 4,000 given away completely free of charge to brain injury survivors and their families via the Headway helpline.

Now though, new digital versions of the booklets have been created in a downloadable format, meaning that they can be more easily accessed for free from the Headway website as ‘e-booklets’. Hyperlinks throughout the e-booklets ensure that readers can quickly refer to other suggested readings or relevant information.

You can download the booklets now from our website at headway.org.uk/about-brain-...
