Headway Preston & Chorley
Headway (Preston & Chorley) aim to provide a wide range of support to meet the individual needs of people with an acquired brain injury, their families and carers. They also promote awareness of acquired brain injury by means of information, advice and training throughout our local community.
Headway Preston and Chorley began meeting in June 2010 and following a number of meetings, it was decided that Headway Preston & Chorley should be established and based in Preston. A Committee of professionals from legal, financial and rehabilitation backgrounds, family members and people who have an acquired brain injury was formed.
They’re based at PNE stadium like Heartbeat NWCC, another local charity that we work with.
We recently published a newly created version of the Headway Preston & Chorley website. The website can be edited by Headway’s staff and is built on the popular WordPress open source content management system (CMS). We were engaged to help Headway rebuild their website to help improve the charity’s profile and take advantage of some funding available for the project. AWP Computer Services also helped Headway with some basic WordPress training, so the staff who currently work on the website had a better understanding of the editing process.
The new Headway Preston & Chorley website developed by AWP was launched on Friday 28th October 2016.
