Wall of Fame


As a small local charity we rely on the support and generosity of local businesses, individuals, grant making trusts and groups to help us achieve our mission of ‘improving life after brain injury‘. We receive no core funding.

We are proud to be members of the wider ‘Headway’ movement across the UK. However, it is important to say that while we are affiliated to Headway UK, the national infrastructure agency for Headway independent charities, we are entirely separate from them. Headway Derby is an independent charity registered with the Charities Commission (England and Wales)(nr 1107803) and a charitable company limited by guarantee registered with Companies House (04658919).

Over the last few years we’ve listened carefully to you and made significant changes to the way we work.

We’ve worked with clients, family members and carers, the Derby NHS Head Injury Team and staff and volunteers of the charity to create ‘Rediscovering My Brain’ development model. In the first wave of this new model 100% of participants saw an increase across 80% of their chosen themes, such as confidence, self-esteem, resilience and relationships.

The support we receive from legacies, being ‘Charity of the Year’, individual donors, funders, members, volunteers and local press is fantastic, and in these financially challenging times we are truly grateful for anything our supporters can spare – THANK YOU!

Our wall of fame honours all those who have supported us in recent years.
