About Headway Oxfordshire

Headway Oxfordshire is a charity that works to improve people’s lives post-brain injury and ensure that families and carers are better able to cope within their caring role.

Established in 1982, Headway Oxfordshire has over 30 years’ history of supporting those affected by acquired brain injury. We understand just how complex living with the condition can be and often how wide-ranging the effects are. Therefore, we provide individual initial assessments to tailor the support that we offer to meet your needs and aspirations.

Our Activity and Rehabilitation Centre in Kennington offers a range of activities such as Specialist Exercise, Arts and Music Therapy and more to enhance socialisation and promote rehabilitation back into everyday community life.

We also offer community support across the whole of Oxfordshire to help those who live in remote areas who cannot access our centre or simply require further support at home.

We actively promote awareness of brain injury by offering training to professionals and by running awareness raising events within schools, colleges and universities.

Headway Oxfordshire provides a highly professional and holistic range of support to ensure that we best meet the needs of our service users, their families, and carers.

As a small voluntary sector team, we are looking for a candidate who will not only meet the specific criteria of the job role but also understand and work to the overall organisation aims and objectives and support their fellow team mates to achieve outstanding results.
