Brain And Head Injury Compensation Claims

A volunteer at Headway South West London

A volunteer at Headway South West London

For almost 10 years now, I have been working in my spare time as a volunteer for a local brain injury charity called Headway South West London. Headway South West London (HWSWL) is affiliated to the national Headway UK charity, and it is an amazing charity that provides assistance for people with brain injuries and other neurological conditions (and their families and carers), in the boroughs of Merton, Kingston, Croydon, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth.

For almost 10 years now, I have been working in my spare time as a volunteer for a local brain injury charity called Headway South West London. Headway South West London (HWSWL) is affiliated to the national Headway UK charity, and it is an amazing charity that provides assistance for people with brain injuries and other neurological conditions (and their families and carers), in the boroughs of Merton, Kingston, Croydon, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth.

I am both a trustee and company secretary at Headway South West London. My duties include attending monthly trustee meetings, helping to take management decisions generally and attending regular support meetings for members and their families.  Despite a complete absence of horticultural knowledge(!) I also help to run the allotment that we have for Headway members in Morden in South West London.

As a trustee for such a small charity, you can find yourself doing all kinds of unexpected things that you may never have tried before. For example, at the moment, I am helping to co-ordinate a film project that will help to promote HWSWL in the local area, and to make people who may have suffered a brain injury aware of our existence and that we are available to help them.

Headway South West London is an incredible brain injury charity whose services include monthly support meetings for members in Wimbledon, Croydon, Richmond and Balham, social outings approximately every 2 months (to places such as local restaurants, the zoo or the seaside), telephone advice for members about social security benefits and the allotment. It is run almost entirely by volunteers, receives no financial assistance from the government or local authority and is funded solely by charitable donations.

I have been working as a specialist brain injury personal injury solicitor for almost 19 years and my work with HWSWL complements this well.
