Brain injury survivors and specialists from across the UK will meet at Headway’s annual ‘The Way Ahead’ conference from Friday 29th June to Sunday 1st July 2018.

Headway, the brain injury association, works with victims to improve life after brain injury and every year hosts the conference for survivors, family members, carers, trustees, committee members, staff and volunteers to get together. Thompsons has sponsored the Headway conference since 2015.

The Way Ahead conference, which takes place at Yarnfield Park Conference Centre in Staffordshire, is proudly sponsored by Thompsons Solicitors and gives delegates the opportunity to meet a variety of people affected by brain injuries, in a safe and friendly environment.

This years’ conference features keynote speakers including Dr David Lee, a Clinical Director for Sleep Unlimited which specialises in managing sleep and fatigue in people with a brain injury, former Great Britain equestrian and six time gold medal winner Polly Williamson and former Royal Marines Lieutenant Colonel Mark Bowra.

In addition, Headway has organised workshops, therapies and activities for delegates on a variety of brain injury related topics. Serious injury specialists from Thompsons will also be at the conference to discuss any legal concerns that head injury survivors and their families may have.

Thompsons works closely with Headway to ensure brain injury clients receive information, services and rehabilitation long after their claim has ended, as well as supporting the successful brain injury identity card scheme set up by the charity to help police officers and staff more easily identify brain injury survivors.

Samantha Hemsley, national head of the serious injury team at Thompsons Solicitors said: “We are proud to support The Way Ahead conference again this year and to continue our close partnership with Headway. This conference provides a brilliant opportunity for those affected by brain injuries to engage and learn from specialists and build a support network.

“Headway provides a vital service, including assisting brain injury survivors, their families and carers with information, support and services. Through our work and close links with Headway we have seen first-hand the difference they make to victims of brain injury.”
