Headway offers training in issues that affect people living with brain injury and their families and carers. This is part of our commitment to raise awareness of the challenges involved in brain injury and the healthcare questions it raises.

All of our training is designed to complement the recommendations of the 2005 National Service Framework for Long Term Conditions and can be individually tailored to meet the interests of the participants.

The training is offered nationwide at a range of accessible venues.
