Headway Suffolk is excited to be opening a new weekly Satellite Rehab Hub in Newmarket for people living with brain injury or a neurological condition on Monday 11 December.
The outreach service will open every Monday from 10am – 3pm at Peter O’Sullevan House, 7a Newmarket Road. This is the Injured Jockey Fund’s Rehabilitation Centre, adjacent to the British Racing School in Newmarket.
The group will include a range of activities designed to help each individual with their rehabilitation needs and provide an opportunity to meet others in a safe and stimulating environment.
It will also provide valuable respite for family carers knowing their loved one is being safely cared for.
Headway Suffolk successfully launched a new satellite at Hadleigh Library on Fridays at the start of October and plans to open further outreach groups across the county, helping more people connect to its day rehab service without the need to travel to its main hubs in Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds.
The outstanding-rated charity has identified Aldeburgh, Eye, Framlingham, Haverhill, Leiston, Stowmarket and Sudbury as other towns in need of a satellite and it wants to hear from people in those areas who would be interested in the service so they can monitor numbers.
Helen Fairweather, CEO of Headway Suffolk, said: “We are delighted to be opening a satellite hub in Newmarket and we are very thankful to the Injured Jockey Fund for facilitating an excellent space for us to provide our services from in the town.
“Our first satellite in Hadleigh has started successfully and we hope these groups can grow so we can support more people in both towns.
“There’s lots of people out there who need our help. We had successful satellite hubs before which really helped people to progress before we unfortunately had to close because of Covid.
“A lot of day centres shut during the pandemic and people are missing out on services they need, so we hope people get in touch so we can help them anywhere in Suffolk.”
