HEADWAY THE BRAIN INJURY ASSOCIATION

About Headway – the brain injury association

Each year, around 350,000 people are admitted to hospital in the UK with an acquired brain injury. That’s one every 90 seconds.

Most of these people will need some form of help or support in rebuilding their lives or regaining a degree of independence. And that’s where Headway comes in.

Headway is the UK-wide charity that supports people affected by brain injury, from supporting families at the hospital bedside, through to helping people relearn the basic life skills they once took for granted.

Through its network of more than 125 groups and branches across the UK and a range of frontline services, the charity provides support, services and information to brain injury survivors, their families and carers, as well as to professionals in the health and legal fields.

In addition, the charity provides a directory of approved solicitors that for 15 years has been an invaluable source of information to those requiring legal representation from lawyers with expertise in brain injury.

With all contacts within the directory undergoing Headway training and agreeing to work within the charity’s Personal Injury Lawyers Code of Conduct, the guide provides reassurance to families that they will receive high-quality specialist representation.

For more information about brain injury and the support provided by Headway, or for details about how to apply for the Headway Head Injury Solicitors Directory, visit www.headway.org.uk.

MOTABILITY

The Motability Scheme enables disabled people to use their government-funded mobility allowance to lease a new car, scooter or powered wheelchair. Insurance, servicing and breakdown assistance are all included at no extra cost and car adaptations are available. Family members and carers can also drive the car on behalf of the disabled person, so non-drivers can join the Motability Scheme. The vehicle should be used by, or for the benefit of, the disabled person.

The Motability Scheme is open to those who receive the Higher Rate Mobility Component of Disability Living Allowance (DLA), War Pensioners’ Mobility Supplement (WPMS), the Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Personal Independence Payment (PIP) or the Enhanced Rate Mobility Component of Armed Forces Independence Payment.

The Motability Scheme is operated by Motability Operations Limited under contract to Motability. Motability is a national charity which sets the strategic policies and direction of the Motability Scheme and oversees its performance to ensure that it meets the needs of disabled people. Motability may be able to provide charitable grants to disabled people who would not otherwise be able to afford the car, adaptations or WAV they need.

Motability is a Registered Charity in England and Wales (number 299745) and is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (Reference number 736309). Motability Operations Limited is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (Reference number 735390).
