Every 90 seconds, someone is admitted to hospital with a brain injury, and there are currently over one million people living with the long-term effects of brain injury in the UK. A brain injury can challenge every aspect of your life walking, talking, thinking and feeling and the losses can be severe and permanent. It can mean losing both the life you once lived and the person you once were. At Headway we help people to rebuild their lives, relearn lost skills and regain a degree of independence.

The invaluable fundraising from BLS will support two vital Headway projects. Learn more

  The family of Jeff Astle launched The Jeff Astle Foundation in 2015. The Foundation was established in memory of Jeff Astle as a fitting and lasting legacy to both raise awareness of brain injury in all forms of sport and to offer much needed support to those affected. Learn more
