Headway Suffolk is offering rehab and support to people with brain injury, stroke and neurological conditions on the internet through its virtual hub.
As a result of Covid-19, Headway Suffolk’s day hubs have not been able to operate in the usual way. So that clients did not miss out on vital rehab, a virtual hub was created. Headway Suffolk now feels that it is in a position to offer this to members of the public with a brain injury, stroke or a neurological condition.
The charity’s CEO Helen Fairweather said: “We are delighted with our virtual hub, which operates every weekday. It has kept clients in touch with us and allowed their rehab to continue. It gives them something to look forward to.”
It is hoped in time usual day hubs will open. However, the virtual hubs may continue in the long term, especially for people who find coming into a hub difficult due to transport or fears of infection.
Anyone interested in accessing the virtual hub should contact Helen Fairweather on 01473 712225 or [email protected] for details and for an assessment so people access the most useful group for them.
