Mission StatementHeadway-Natal is a non-profit organisation assisting survivors of acquired brain injury which can be caused by strokes, near drowning, motor and cycle accidents, assaults and even infections such as meningitis and encephalitis. We also provide assistance for their families and carers.
Offering support to acquired brain injury survivors and their families.
Our centre was established in Westville in 1997 and we offer affordable therapy and activity programmes to facilitate rehabilitation. A full assessment and screening is given to each individual and a programme of therapies worked out according to his/her needs. Headway is open to all race groups and for persons 18 years and older. Direct services such as Physiotherapy, Hydrotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Psychology, Dietary Control and Therapy Support Groups are provided to the KwaZulu-Natal area. We have seven Therapists based at Headway. As part of its Outreach Programme, Headway has been supporting Zimele Molweni for some 7 years, sourcing funding for transport, a feeding scheme, a therapist, teacher training and salaries. For more information on Zimele Molweni, see the Outreach page.
Our finances and ongoing efforts at fundraising projects, expenditure always exceeds income and we have to rely heavily on sponsorships, fundraising and/or donations. Without funding it would not be possible for Headway-Natal to continue to offer its unique services and we welcome any assistance in this regard.
