Making Headway – A Magical Event

Final Headway logoHeadway  Cambridgeshire saw their Heritage Project clients launch the results of their history research project. The clients have been learning about the history of brain injury and how the treatment of this and other disabilities changed in Cambridgeshire over the years.

To do this, the group had searched through local archives for documents and photographs. They had also interviewed many people who were involved in, or affected by, changes in the way brain injury has been perceived over time.
