Hidden disability: Share your views


Take part in the Headway UK survey exploring the experiences of the hidden disability that is brain injury.

This year, Headway UK Action for Brain Injury Week (ABI Week) campaign will focus on the challenges brain injury survivors and carers may face when living life with a hidden and often-misunderstood disability.

To help shape the campaign and better understand your experiences, we have launched our ABI Week 2022 survey for See the hidden me.

The survey is designed to be completed by brain injury survivors and their carers, and will help us to raise awareness and understanding of the issues that matter the most.

Young Volunteer Overwhelmed by a Special Certificate of Merit from the Child of Britain Award Judges

Callum, who is 15, is special needs and has volunteered at the charity shop for two years. He has become a firm favourite with staff and visitors during that time.

The nomination was made by Tina Cheswick of Headway Winsford to recognise Callum’s dedicated and hard work at the shop and the award was presented by the Mayor of Winsford, Cllr Nathan Pardoe who visited the shop to surprise Callum.

Callum’s nan, Donna said  “I’m over the moon! When I found out Tina had nominated him, I was in tears”.

The chief executive of Headway UK, Peter McAbe added: “Callum’s story is particularly heartening. He is an inspirational young man who puts smiles on the faces of all who come into the Headway shop. We are delighted that the Child of Britain Awards have recognised him with a certificate of merit.”
