Rehabilitation Services

We deliver a tailored programme of rehabilitation to our clients, guided by our specialist therapists, who are individually assessed using client-centred goal plans. Each client is assigned a keyworker who helps them set independent living goals using the Wellbeing Star, monitors and maintains a record of progress, and ensures that the clients’ needs are regularly reviewed. Our experienced staff are supported by regular volunteers.

Our day services are based at our Headway East Sussex in Newick on weekdays and we also provide an outreach service in the community. Both of these are funded services, and our Advice and Support team will provide information and advice on funding.
