Become a Trustee

Give back to your local community!

Headway Blackpool Wyre and Fylde is a small but growing charity with ambitious plans for future expansion of its services. We are a registered charity with links to the national charity – Headway.

We aim to provide information, support and social activities for people suffering from acquired brain injuries. We also aim to support carers, family and friends. Perhaps most importantly, we offer the chance to share experiences knowing that the group members understand some of the problems and difficulties that acquired brain injury brings.

We currently have a number of dedicated Trustees and Committee members but to help us grow we need experienced members of the public to join our Board of Trustees. We are particularly keen to recruit members of the local community and business leaders in Blackpool Wyre and Fylde who have one or more of the following:

  • Strong networking links within the Blackpool Wyre and Fylde region and wider North West
  • Strong strategy and planning skills and experience
  • An intertest in giving back to the local community in particular supporting those with acquired brain injures

Board meetings are held every month at the Headway Blackpool, Sharples Hall, Bosworth Place on Tuesday between 11.30am and 1.30pm. Followed by our regular members drop-in session.

The Board is responsible for setting the strategy and direction/focus of Headway Blackpool Wyre and Fylde.
