MEMBERS of Herefordshire Headway are exhibiting their art work at St Martin’s Church in the Bull Ring at Birminghamuntil Wednesday, February 26

Herefordshire Headway joins other Headway charities in the West Midlands in the hope that onlookers will gain some knowledge about the effects of brain injury on the individual, and to inform the public how art can help the rehabilitation process.

The artwork demonstrates the individuality of each member’s often newfound artistic skill and also provides impressions of their feelings concerning their particular brain injury.

There are estimated to be more than one million people in the UK living with the long term effects of brain injury caused by various forms of brain injury such as accidents, stroke and brain tumour.

Headway is a local charity that supports people in Herefordshire with acquired brain injury (ABI). The day centre offers ongoing rehabilitation for people who are often left with physical, psychological and cognitive problems that may include speech, memory and behavioural difficulties. Carefully planned rehabilitation programmes appropriate for the individual include art, music and speech therapy, plus opportunities to take part in a wide range of activities – designed to stimulate both mental and physical functioning.
