Headway, the brain injury association, will host its annual outdoor activity event, Look Ahead in the North, this weekend (11 – 13 March 2016).

The annual outdoor adventure weekend, which takes place at the Calvert Trust, Kielder in Northumberland, offers brain injury survivors and their carers the opportunity to meet new people and experience a range of activities and therapies.

Activities will include the king swing, zip wire, low and high ropes, indoor climbing, laser clay shooting, card-making and crafting. The on-site swimming pool and sensory room will also be available to visitors in addition to holistic therapies and a neuro-hypnotherapy workshop.

A Queen tribute act, disco, caricature artist and bird of prey demonstration will feature as part of a programme of entertainment throughout the weekend.

Headway is a UK-wide charity that works to improve life after brain injury and offers support, services and information to brain injury survivors, their families and carers.

Paul Brown, secretary for Headway Wearside and senior serious injury solicitor at Thompsons Solicitors, said: “Charities such as Headway offer vital services to victims of serious injury and we work closely with such support groups to ensure our clients receive the support and advice they require following a serious brain injury.

“Headway’s Look Ahead to the North event is a great opportunity for brain injury survivors, and their families or carers, to meet new friends and try out an exciting range of activities. We are proud to once again sponsor this event and hope that all attendees find the experience a worthwhile and enjoyable one.”
