Headway East Northants aims to provide a specialist service for people with Acquired Brain Injury ('ABI'). ABI is damage to the brain acquired after birth and usually affects cognitive, physical, emotional, social or independent functioning. It can be a result of traumatic brain injury (e.g. road traffic accident, assault) or non traumatic brain injury (e.g. stroke, infection, brain tumour). Headway East Northants provides information, signposting and support services for people with ABI, their families and carers.
