Headway Sefton is encouraging people to drop in to its Keep In Touch (K.I.T.) social group.
Headway Sefton is an official branch of the national Headway group which aims to offer practical and emotional support to the victims of a head or brain injury and also their carers.
A spokesperson for the K.I.T. group says: “For our users, we aim to increase confidence, motivation, and improve communication skills. Where possible, we hope to increase users’ independence.
“The group is designed for brain injury survivors, and our volunteers are passionate about helping them to rebuild their lives. Volunteers, carers, support workers and therapists are encouraged to accompany the survivor. They are crucial for the survivors as part of their ongoing care and/or rehabilitation.
“We share an understanding of learning to accept and cope with the ‘new’ me. Users have felt the complete loss of confidence, the self-doubt and becoming withdrawn from their friends – and that’s just naming three things! We feel that the K.I.T Group can work together to get as much back in life as they possibly can. Even if they can’t, they are going to enjoy the ‘new’ me!”
The K.I.T. social group meets at The Queen’s Picture House, Wetherspoons, 47–49 South Road, Waterloo, L22 5PE from 10am-12noon on a Wednesday, with the next one on August 29.
The rest of 2018 dates are:
September 5, 19, 26
October 3, 17, 24, 31
November 7, 21, 28
December 5, 19
The main Headway Sefton group has a monthly meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at Waterloo Rugby Club.
