Headway Wirral still in action amid corona crisis

Tue 07 Apr 2020

Even in troubling times, Headway Wirral is still supporting brain injury survivors through an extensive ring around service and welfare check-ins.

Last month, the charity – based on Chester Street, Birkenhead – was forced to close the doors to its day centre, but through the provision of new remote services, it is continuing in its mission to improve life after brain injury.

The team at Headway Wirral have been tireless in their efforts to reassure service users that while the centre may be closed for the time being, the support on offer remains unchanged.

Brain injury survivors who attend the charity’s day centre can call staff and volunteers to talk through their worries, discuss any extra support that’s needed or even just to have a chat.

Phillip Barr, Development Officer at Headway Wirral has been at the forefront of these changes. He said: “It’s more important now than ever that we rally together to show our support for the vulnerable members of our community.

“Being cut off from the outside world, friends and family can be difficult for anyone, even more so for brain injury survivors who are already combating feelings of isolation and loneliness and rely on places like Headway Wirral.

“We must continue to support these people in any way we can. Headway Wirral always has, and always will do whatever it can to support those affected by brain injury, even in challenging times such as these.”

Like many other charities however, the coronavirus outbreak has the potential to have a huge impact on the Headway Wirral’s finances.

Phillip said: “By donating the usual cost of your commute to work, that cup of coffee you get on your lunch break or just spare change, you’ll be helping us to support those affected by the devastating and life-long effects of brain injury.”
