Headway West Kent is a charity supporting adults across West Kent who have been affected by brain injury, either as a result of an accident or illness such as a stroke, brain tumour or haemorrhage.
We have a centre in Tunbridge Wells and offer support in the community through our Community Wellbeing Support, Wellbeing Support Groups and a Programme of Activities.
Acquired brain injury (ABI) is the largest cause of acquired disability in the working age population. It is estimated that 8,000 people across West Kent have an acquired brain injury.
Headway West Kent provides the only service of its kind in West Kent and although affiliated to Headway UK, we are independent and self funding.
