Expert Opinion
“As a firm, we are very proud of our longstanding relationship with Headway across the UK.

“Through our work on behalf of many seriously injured people, we recognise the fantastic work they do to help those with acquired brain injuries to take steps towards recovery and regaining independence.

“We hope our support will help the charity to further develop and expand its services in the local area, and that their conference will also boost education and understanding of the key emerging issues related to those with neurological conditions.”

Helen Fairweather of Headway Suffolk said: “We are hugely grateful to Irwin Mitchell for their ongoing support.

“There is often a gap between medical care and the support that severely injured people received in the outside world, so we are committed to ensure that the gap is bridged – with ultimate aim of ensuring that many people are able to regain their independence and get the most from life.”
