Headway Gauteng, established in 1995, is a registered non-profit organisation dedicated to supporting adult survivors of acquired brain injury (ABI) and their families. Many of our injured members have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a result of a motor vehicle accident, assault, fall or sporting accident. We also assist survivors of other acquired brain injuries such as stroke and other neurological illness. Brain injury is a life changing event for the survivors and their families, and poses significant physical, cognitive, emotional, behavioural, and financial challenges. . Headway aims to be a guiding light in the journey of living with brain injury.
§ To be a primary, accessible, and committed resource for persons or families affected by brain injury
§ To eventually service all communities throughout South Africa
§ To maintain Governance that is respected, capable and transparent
Headway Gauteng currently provides psychosocial and therapeutic support to approximately 300 families across Gauteng (as well as other provinces) from its flagship in Hyde Park and satellite branch in Soweto. When funding permits, our aim is to further expand our reach.
