In September we will start posting regular blogs:

In the meantime here’s a a few updates for you:

Head Outdoors

Head Outdoors is a small project we deliver whenever we can and involves, yes you guessed it, heading outdoors. A number of our members love to walk, hike and ramble and so we like to go out and about into beautiful Derbyshire whenever possible. We’ve visited Elvaston Castle, Carsington Water, Poppy Wood, Robin Wood to name just a few so far this year and we’d love to be able to do this more frequently. If you’d like to volunteer with Head Outdoors and help to organise and lead on some walks we’d love to hear from you – contact us at

Rediscovering My Brain Course

Our much loved Rediscovering My Brain Course starts again in September with groups on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All materials are provided and we work closely with each learner to ensure they get the very best out of their experience with us. If you want to know more contact Lyn by emailing

Quote from Lyn, Headway Derby’s Service Delivery Coordinator

‘this course is an amazing opportunity for people who’ve been affected by brain injury to
meet with other survivors and learn to improve their lives again through an intentionally designed
scheme of work, together and without judgement. It is such a great course and a real privilege
watching people develop from week to week. It’s takes motivation to start the course and
commitment to see it through; but the outcomes are fabulous.’
