Headway News - October 2020

  • 9 October 2020

It’s almost a year since you voted me to be President of Headway (Brain Injury Association, Auckland). It has been a challenging and interesting year for all of us. I hope you will come along to our AGM. It’s such a good opportunity for the Board to hear from you and for us to let you know what we have achieved and what we are planning to do. You, our members, clients, families and friends are the lifeblood of our organisation. You are the ones that drive our direction and inform the activities and services we provide – so please come along, socialise and let us hear what else you would like from Headway.
Meanwhile, stay safe and well.

All the best

What's On at Headway House?

Our Women's Group meets monthly on the FIRST Thursday at 10am.

This Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Group caters for any person with brain injury, both men and women. Held at Headway House, please feel free to come along.

Headway Harmonies

Headway Harmonies is open to anyone, of any level of singing experience, and we usually do a performance at Headway House every 6-8 weeks.

We meet at Headway House EVERY THURSDAY 11am-12pm

All of our practices involve a warmup and some vocal exercises, and then we sing through some of the songs that have been requested the previous week. All our songs have been chosen by our participants and we love taking requests!

It's time for the Headway, Brain Injury Association, Auckland, Annual General Meeting AGM.
Join the community at Headway House, 207 Manukau Road, from 6pm for some social time and light refreshments before the 7pm meeting.
It's a great opportunity to reconnect and meet up with each other.
