There's a one in four chance that you know someone affected by a brain injury, either from a stroke, accident, fall or other cause. Celebrated for our unique, multidisciplinary approach, Headway acts as a lifeline to people living with the long-term effects of brain injury. Our specialist rehabilitation staff help to rebuild skills and confidence, helping survivors, and their families, to get the most out of life.   Often we are the only support that can help people get back to any kind of normal life.

Thus far, we have dramatically impacted the lives of thousands - you can read some of the  personal stories here .  Now we need your company help to ensure that a brain injury survivor will receive the services they need to get back to living.  Your support is an investment in our future.

There are a number of ways to get your company involved to make a real difference people living with brain injury. Some of our most popular methods of giving are listed below. If you have an idea that’s not listed and would like to talk though your idea please don’t hesitate to contact Sarah Benson bensons@headway.ie

Charity of the year partnerships:

Many companies like to choose a different charity to support each year. The charity in question benefits from the companies various efforts throughout the year. Our experienced team will work with you to create a package – tailored to your specific needs whether it be volunteering or fundraising. We would be delighted to meet with you and explain what it is we do and how your support will help us provide better services for our clients and their families .

Sponsorship & Donations:

Some companies like to just make a once off donation to a charity of their choice without organising any type of event. Many companies make a donation instead of buying gifts at Christmas for their clients. We can provide a letter and receipt which can be sent with your Corporate Christmas card stating a donation has been made in lieu of gifts.

Matched & Tax Effective Giving:

Some companies are willing to match what a member of staff has managed to raise through sponsorship. If your company operates a matching gift scheme we can provide you with any necessary information or fill in any forms required. A company is able to claim tax back from donations above €250.00 e.g. ABC Ltd makes a company donation of €250 to Headway and receives a receipt. ABC Ltd can then claim a deduction for the donation as if it were a trading expense. ABC Ltd pays corporation tax at 20% so their corporation tax bill is reduced by €250x20%=€50]
