According to NICE, head injury is the most common cause of death and disability in people aged 1–40 in the UK. Each year, 1.4 million people attend emergency departments in England and Wales with a recent head injury. When a head injury occurs, immediate medical treatment is given, but treatment of a patient can become a much lengthier process. In some instances, the psychological trauma associated with an injury may involve an adjustment and rehabilitation process. Therefore, there are various charities up and down the country to help aid and rehabilitate people that have sustained head injuries. Charities like this often use promotional products to raise funds or awareness.
Suffolk Makes Headway with Injury Support Services.
Here at EverythingCommunity, we were approached from a brain injury survivor and board member of Headway Suffolk, Alec. Headway Suffolk are a charity that supports people with brain injury, neurological conditions and those who care for them. They offer advice, support, rehabilitation and support services to anyone over the age of 16 who has, during their lifetime, sustained a brain injury through traumatic accident, stroke, virus, tumor, neurological condition or other similar event. Alec was keen to help them out anyway he could, to show his gratitude for the amazing service they provide and having helped our local Headway in Leicester we were excited to extend our help to another franchise.
Headway Suffolk Receive a Mixed Bag
We were happy to donate branded keyrings, branded cambridge mugs as well as shopper bags for Headway Suffolk to distribute to their members who have been attending their Digital Day Centre, keeping their doors open with virtual sessions when most others were closed for Lockdown No.1, No.2 AND No.3.
‘I love these items they are so professionally made. They will help to raise funds to keep Headway Suffolk’s vital services operational’ – Alec, brain injury survivor and board member of Headway Suffolk
