Headway South West London (HWSWL) is a dedicated charity that helps individuals with brain injury, and their families and carers, across the boroughs of Merton, Kingston, Sutton, Croydon, Richmond and Wandsworth. It provides monthly support meetings for brain injury survivors in Wimbledon, Richmond, Croydon and Balham, a free telephone advice service for social security benefits, an allotment and social trips (to places such as restaurants, the seaside and zoo) every two months.
I, together with two of my colleagues, have been involved with HWSWL for a number of years. Trevor Sterling, Partner at Moore Blatch, is Deputy Chairman of HWSWL. Eman Hassan, Solicitor in the Major Trauma Service at Moore Blatch, is a Trustee. I was a Trustee for many years and continue to assist the Board of Trustees. All three of us specialise in injury claims involving severe brain injuries and it is a pleasure to be able to work with a charity that does crucial work for individuals with brain injuries and their families.
Moore Blatch has a long and proud association with Headway. Martin Usher, who is an Associate Solicitor in the Serious Injury Department, is Chair of Headway Southampton.
