Headway Black Country - our history

Headway Black Country is a service for people with an acquired brain injury, their family and carers, living in the Black Country area of the West Midlands (comprised of the Boroughs of Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and the City of Wolverhampton).

Headway Black Country was set up in 1997 to address the need for specialist support for people with acquired brain injury their family and carers in the Black Country. With a population of over 1m in the Black Country area it is estimated there are likely to be approximately 2,500 people with a severe brain injury.

Headway Black Country began initially as a fund raising, awareness and support group. With the help of two substantial Lottery/Community Fund grants Headway Black Country was able to employ staff, set up services and become an independent charity affiliated to Headway - the brain injury association.

The development of services has continued and during 2010/11 premises acquired at Martin Hill Street, Dudley were renovated and refurbished creating a high quality environment for our services to clients and carers. Our Specialist Brain Injury Rehab Service providing therapeutic and rehabilitative activities are provided at Martin Hill Street Dudley and, since April 2014, at our premises at West Midlands House Gypsy Lane, Willenhall. Our office base is at our Dudley premises.
