Supporting people with acquired brain injury and their families

About Headway Gippsland


Headway Gippsland supports people with acquired brain injury (ABI) and their families, carers and service providers. We also work with all levels of government and the media to ensure the needs of our membership are heard and acted upon.

Headway Gippsland is an independent, non-profit organisation committed to enabling people with ABI and a range of cognitive, sensory and physical disabilities to re-establish skills in all areas of independent living based on their individual choices.

We provide a range of services to people with ABI aged between 18 and 64 and their carers including:

  • social support
  • respite
  • individual support
  • carer support
  • information and community education
  • training
  • care coordination and management.

How Did Headway Gippsland Start?

Headway Gippsland began its life back in 1981 when a committed group of people started a support group in Morwell to help people with ABI socialise and learn some new skills. Headway Gippsland now supports two carers groups and five social support groups across Gippsland. Read more about Headway Gippsland's history.
