HEADWAY HYDE PARK
Headway Hyde Park, the first of our branches, opened in 1999 and is situated in the beautiful and peaceful grounds of San Salvador (a home for women with intellectual disabilities. Here at Headway Hyde Park, we offer group therapy and activity programmes as well as counselling and support for the attendees and their family members. Creating awareness of TBI and its effects is one of the main objectives of this branch and this is accomplished by using social media such as Facebook and Twitter as well as by holding monthly family support group meetings (supervised by a trained counsellor) where problems experienced by individuals with brain injury and their families can be discussed in a safe and secure environment.
Our annual membership fee R360 per family per year and entitles all affected family members to the full range of services we offer.
Administration, fundraising and strategic planning for all the branches is handled at our Headway Gauteng head office which is adjacent to our Hyde Park branch.
HEADWAY KHOMELELA (ALEXANDRA)
Headway Khomelela has been in operation since 2005 and is situated on the premises of the Alexandra Community Health Clinic. Khomelela, which means “never give up” is the first of our two sponsored branches. In addition to our group therapy and activity programme and counselling and support programme, staff and volunteers at Khomelela also facilitate a number of community projects and awareness campaigns aimed at empowering and educating the Alex community about acquired brain injury.
