Brain injury survivors have learned vital first aid skills through training sessions at Headway Suffolk that has been made possible by New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership funding.
Five Suffolk residents, who are gaining rehabilitation and re-learning life skills at charity Headway following a brain injury or a neurological condition, recently passed a course that tested their competence at giving first aid treatment.
This is a notable addition to their CV for employers as they look to be work-ready, get back into work or into voluntary employment.
In April last year New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership awarded Headway Suffolk £20,000 to equip clients with the necessary skills and knowledge to return to the work environment.
On March 29, representatives of Headway Suffolk’s Board of Trustees presented the clients with the certificates of achievements.
The occasion was also attended by Suffolk Community Foundation, who facilitated the grant, and certificates presented by their grants manager Andrea.
Headway Suffolk supports 250 people who have an acquired brain injury or a neurological condition every week with rehabilitation and therapy at its hubs, in the community and at home throughout Suffolk and south Norfolk.
