New Rehabilitation Hub and Housing Project in Ipswich

Headway Suffolk is embarking on ambitious and exciting plans to be a new rehabilitation hub and housing for clients – with the centre to named ‘The Professor Stephen Hawking Neuro Centre’ after the world-renowned scientist.

The centre will be built on the Ravenswood area of Ipswich and include facilities for rehabilitation and support for clients with brain injuries and neurological conditions. It will also include 24 homes in two bungalows where our clients will have the opportunity to live as independently as they are able to.

It will replace our current hub at Epsilon House on Ransomes Europark, which will be sold to help support the new project. It is due to open in 2020.
