Carer of the Year 2019

Thu 05 Dec 2019

Once a year, Headway's members, friends and supporters come together to pay tribute to some very special people: brain injury survivors, carers, volunteers and campaigners whose personal achievements have earned the admiration of everyone around them. Their stories are moving and inspirational.

The Carer of the Year Award, sponsored by Barr Ellison Solicitors, celebrates the incredible dedication and devotion of those who care for people with a brain injury. Our finalists represent thousands of others across the UK who day-in, day-out demonstrate admirable determination to prove that there can be life after brain injury.

Three inspirational people have been nominated for the award:
