Referral Details

Anyone can make a referral.

Referrals must be for someone who has had an acquired brain injury (ABI). Headway East London does not offer services to people who have a progressive illness or brain injuries from birth.

To be referred you must live in our catchment area which includes the following London Boroughs: Barking & Dagenham, Camden, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Havering, Islington, Kensington & Chelsea, Newham, Redbridge, The City, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Westminster.

It is important that anyone referred to the Headway House or the Young People’s Group is able to behave appropriately in a group setting. An assessment period will be required before a person is given a permanent place in either of these services.

Headway East London is only able to offer placements/services to people with high care needs if we are confident we will be able to meet those needs.

What to do if you have a complaint

If there’s something you like or are not happy with, then talk about it with the worker or the manager so they can look at how they deliver their service. If you are still not happy, ask if they have a complaints procedure.

Can parents & young people buy this service as part of their SEND personal budget?
