Headway Essex cares for people who have acquired a brain injury and this may be through sporting or work accidents, road traffic accidents, assault, illness or disease.

Support is given in two ways: 
  • The Headway Centre is a day centre in Colchester where rehabilitation activities take place.  These activities are designed to help people to rebuild their lives after brain injury.  The centre has 72 places available each week.
  • The Community Support Team provides telephone support, information on the different aspects of brain injury, support groups, training for carers, specialist literature on brain injury, home and hospital visits and educational talks.  Currently over 300 families are supported across Essex.

David Tennant became the patron of Headway Essex after researching for his role in the 2007 BBC drama Recovery in which he plays a building site manager who acquires a head injury following an accident. David spent time visiting the day centre and talking to survivors of brain injury and their families. He said,

“The spirit and humour of the clients at Headway Essex was remarkable. Spending that time with them and experiencing at first hand the wonderful work the staff and charity are doing, I felt I wanted to be involved. I was delighted to accept the position of Patron of Headway Essex and look forward to helping out when and where I can.”
