Headway (Ireland) Ltd.


Headway is a not for profit organization that provides community-based rehabilitation services for adults living with an Acquired Brain Injury. It is estimated that between 9,000 and 11,000 people sustain a traumatic brain injury every year in Ireland. An Acquired Brain Injury can be caused by a stroke, a bleed in the brain, an infection, a tumor, a lack of oxygen etc…
Headway mission is to: To bring positive change in the lives of those affected by an acquired brain injury
Three years ago, a small group of clients, all brain injury survivors, decided to meet and join forces to raise money for Headway. Since then the group has double its size, and we have organized many successful events. Their goal is to raise € 10,000 by the end of 2021. An acquired brain injury can often knock down the confidence of the individual affected. By achieving this goal the group will raise funding for our much needed services and will bring awareness about the work we do. additionally this will boost the self esteem of the members of the group.

Our fundraising target is: €5000

Gross monies raised so far: €665

Supporters so far: 55
