About Headway Cardiff & South East Wales
Who We Are:
We were established in 1985 as a support group by people with acquired brain injury (ABI), their families and therapists in Rookwood Specialist Rehabilitation Hospital to address the lack of support available to families on discharge and the isolation they could experience. We have grown and evolved over the years in response to the changing needs of the ABI community living in South East Wales.
What We Do:
From our premises in Rookwood Hospital in Cardiff, we run our 4 day a week Independence and Wellbeing Centre, Information and Outreach, Welfare Benefits and Counselling Services, and monthly Family and Friends group. We also reach out into the community. Our Information and Outreach Officers visit people wherever needed and we run weekly social and activity groups that meet in various locations in Cardiff and Pontypool.
Why We Need You:
Our aim is to promote understanding of all aspects of acquired brain injury and to provide information, support and services to people with acquired brain injury, their families and carers. To do this we need as much help as possible. We receive no formal funding and rely on donations to help us to continue to provide the services that are so vitally needed by our community.

We’ll ensure you get a charity discount of £25 off our 10,000ft or 15,000ft skydives when your charity is selected. Determine if your charity expects you to meet a fundraising target or if you will be self-funding the skydive.
You’re all set to start fundraising once you’ve booked your skydive! Your charity can help you with fundraising, and we’ll be available to answer any questions you have about the skydive!
Build your team
Skydiving is even more exhilarating when shared with friends, why not invite your friends and family and create a shared experience with memories that will last a lifetime.
Select Your charity
Choose one of our 300 registered charities or jump in support of your own charity. Each registered charity will state if they will contribute to some of your jump cost or if you need to self-fund your own place.
Book your Skydive
Book individually or as a group with just a £50 deposit per person. Some of the charities we work with have reserved spaces on pre-booked days that you are more than welcome to join. See our date picker tool below.
OK you're all set - We recommend you set up an online fundraising page as all funds you raise will automatically go to the charity of your choice.
