Headway Salford, Trafford & North Manchester

We are a charity set up to give help and support to local people affected by brain injury.

Brain injury can challenge every aspect of your life – walking, talking, thinking and feeling and the losses can be severe and permanent. It can mean losing both the life you once lived and the person you once were.

We’re a charitable organisation operating in Salford, Trafford and North Manchester who provide information, support and social activities for people suffering from acquired brain injuries. We also support carers, family and friends. Perhaps most importantly, we offer the chance to share experiences knowing that the group members understand some of the problems and difficulties that acquired brain injury brings.


  • Locally

    Here at Headway Salford, Trafford and North Manchester we are part of a network of over 120 local Groups and Branches of Headway – The Brain Injury Association. Headway supports people living with brain injuries throughout the UK  and offers a wide range of services, including rehabilitation programmes, carer support, social re-integration, community outreach and respite care. The services available will vary, depending on local needs and resources.
