Brain injury charity Headway plans new Cambridge centre

A brain injury charity has started raising funds for a new £2.5m rehabilitation centre near Cambridge.

Headway currently provides day centre support from a building described by its chief executive as "cramped and dire".

Mary Goode said the charity hoped to raise the funds within five years.

"Each year 1,300 people suffer brain injury in Cambridgeshire. Our waiting list proves a new centre is essential to grow our services," she said.

Fundraising manager Karen Bevan said: "We need a new facility that will enable us to meet the needs of our clients, offering new opportunities to learn and live independently and to re-enter the world of education, work or their own communities.

"We hope our Home for Headway campaign will help us achieve that."
