About Us

About Headway Bedford

Originally founded in 1984 as a brain injury support group, Headway Bedford set up its first service centre and base in 1990. We provide an holistic, client-centred approach to the consequences of brain injury through cognitive, physical, social and emotional re-learning and rehabilitation services. For referrers

Today, we have our own dedicated premises at the Bedford Health Village, conveniently located near Bedford town centre. Why not have a look around?

Most of our client referrals come from the NHS, GPs and other Social Services professionals, but we also welcome direct approaches from anyone affected by brain injury throughout the Bedfordshire area.

Our Mission Statement

To improve the lives of people who acquired a brain injury by providing excellent services which promote independence and well being through enabling our clients to establish and achieve their personal aims and objectives.
