About us

Headway South Cumbria was established in 2012 and we have been growing ever since. We support families who have suffered the effects of brain injury across the South Cumbria area from Barrow and Kendal in the south to Shap and Appleby in the north east. An acquired brain injury (ABI) is an injury caused to the brain since birth. There are many possible causes, including a fall, a road accident, tumour and stroke.

Each year we have an AGM to elect Committee Members who help to fund raise, organise activities and ensure that the branch operates for the benefit of the its members. 

The current committee officers are: 

Chair - Glenys Marriott

Secretary - Helen Shaw

Treasurer - Nick Gutteridge

Fundraising Officers - Christine and David Wilson

Media and Communications Officer - Jeanette Morris

We are working to improve life after brain injury by providing information, support, events, activities and opportunities locally. Our aim is to work together with people affected by an acquired brain injury so they can move forward and make progress. 

We have excellent support from health and social care professionals and provide help and advice, support with social activities, or just a listening ear when you need one. All brain injuries are different and each person deals with them in different ways but you just need to remember that we are here for you and you are not alone.  If you feel we can help you or you would like to join us do contact us.

Our patron - Simon Yates
