Headway Swindon is a centre based in Dorcan, Swindon. We specialise in bespoke Cognitive Rehabilitation Therapy using pen and paper exercises. This is supplemented with brain training activities through computer software, speech and language software, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and other therapeutic activities.
If you are living with a brain injury or has a family member who is, you can refer yourself/them to Headway Swindon. We accept referrals from Swindon and surrounding areas and accept people with a range of brain injuries, with rehab potential, including Stroke.
Attendees usually come once per week from 10am to 3pm on an agreed day.
To refer yourself/someone to Headway Swindon, please follow the procedure below:
- Complete the referral form and send to our Operations Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org or post to: Headway Swindon, Ground Floor, Avocet House, The Dorcan Complex, Faraday Road, Dorcan, Swindon, Wiltshire, SN3 5HQ.
- Louise will make contact and arrange an initial visit for the brain injury survivor plus their carer, family member or professional as required. The purpose of the initial visit is for us to gain more information about how your injury affects you and to look around the centre.
- If all goes well, we would then arrange a start date.
We charge a daily attendance rate. Clients need to be funded to attend and this is means tested. Clients will need to make their own way to our centre (or transport arranged for them).
