Community support services


Our Community Support team work one-to-one with people in their own homes and communities.

Our specially trained Community Support Workers provide individually tailored care to enable people with brain injuries to live happier and more independent lives.

Our Community Support Workers are experienced in supporting people to access employment and education, providing help with housing issues, and supporting people with tasks such as budgeting and shopping.

Because every client is different, every Community Support programme is different and designed to meet the individual’s particular needs. In the past year, as well as enabling clients to live independently in their own homes, our Community Support Workers have supported clients during fishing trips, on hospital visits, to attend college courses and on social trips.

Centre services

We run day centres for adults with acquired brain injuries in Exeter, Honiton and South Devon.

At our centres people with brain injuries are able to meet new people and take part in activities to help them relearn lost skills and develop new ones.  Our centres can also provide valuable respite for carers.

All of our centres are different, but all offer a varied programme of activities including arts and crafts, board games and exercises to improve thinking skills.

The work that goes on at our centres is long-term, and progress for individual clients may takes years, not months. But this never stops clients and staff from looking forward to a bright future.

Support for families and carers

At Headway Devon we recognise the vital role that carers perform and we are committed to ensuring that carers feel well-equipped to perform their role. Our Carer’s Lead and a team that understand that a brain injury affects the whole family. We offer support, information and advice to the Carer

All of our services offer valuable respite opportunities for carers. Our long history of working with people with brain injuries and our specialist skills mean that the person you care for will be in safe hands, leaving you free to carry out chores, spend time with friends and family, or simply unwind.

We also run regular carers catch up sessions on our Carers, Family Members and Friends Facebook group. These sessions offer information, support and advice for carers who support someone with an acquired brain injury. The sessions are free to attend and there is no need to register.
