Headway Salford,
Trafford & North

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 charity 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.

Our service offers the chance for people who have experienced brain injury to get together in a relaxed, supportive and informal environment.

We provide a day-centre service every Thursday from 10am until 3pm.

Other activities include computer skills session, cycling at Wheels for All (with adapted bikes), cooking, exercise, art sessions and day outings, to name but a few!


There is a charge of £45 for the service, some of the group receive funding from the local authority for this, others pay for themselves on an individual basis. We can help with applications for this funding, which is quite straightforward, especially if you are already in contact with a social worker or occupational therapist. There is an option of attending for half a day for £22.50 if this is preferred (morning session: 10am till 12.30pm or afternoon session: 12.30pm till 3pm)

We are a busy charity with a dedicated team of trustees and volunteers. We run many social activities and fundraising events, there is always lots going on!
