Chris Brunker, Chair of HSWL, was invited to speak with Tony Hart, Link Worker for Headway West London, on 16th March at the Vocational Rehabilitation Group, Queen Mary’s Hospital, Roehampton. The group had a lot of questions about Headway and how people with a history of acquired brain injury support each other as they deal with their challenges.

One of HSWL’s regular service users, Tom Ryan-Elliot, has been part of the new Transport for London ‘Please offer me a seat’ campaign. TfL is offering a free badge or a discrete card for passengers with hidden conditions who may find it difficult to find a seat during busy periods.
Tom developed epilepsy following his brain injury and although he uses a wristband with epilepsy written on it, hopes that being part of this campaign will make travelling better for others. You can read his personal story that he has shared with the Epilepsy Society and look out for these TfL posters in stations around London.
