The Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust has welcomed Headway Cambridgeshire – the charity which helps people with brain injuries – to our Ida Dawrin site.

Dr Attila Vegh performed the opening ceremony as Headway celebrated its relocation to a new headquarters at Block 10.

He said: “I am delighted to welcome Headway Cambridgeshire  to our Fulbourn site.
“The work the charity does is truly inspiring and I am pleased that this move will mean they can expand their work and help even more people and their families and carers.
“CPFT is always keen to form new partnerships and having Headway at our Fulbourn sit is a great example of how we can join together for the benefit of patients.”

The charity's new headquarters has been transformed and now includes a kitchen, a computer suite, an art room and a large gymnasium.

Headway Chief Executive Mary Goode said: “After a long search for better and bigger premises, we are so pleased to be at Ida Darwin.  After spending some money modifying the building, mostly to improve disabled access, Block 10 is well designed to help us deliver a modern rehabilitation service for all our clients, and we look forward to developing our services in the future.”

Headway runs rehabilitation and social inclusion programmes to support about 750 with brain injuries and their families and carers across Cambridgeshire each year, including at bases in Peterborough and Huntingdon.
 
Over the course of the coming year at its new premises in Fulbourn, around 100 people will be able to access a structured, goal led support service, focusing on personal progression for the client, reablement and  social inclusion.
