The Headstart Acquired Brain Injury Service is recognised as a premier provider of community based specialist services for people with an ABI in the Hunter. Headstart provides individually tailored services across community access, in home support, life skills, social, leisure and recreational services, case co-ordination, family support and community information and education.
Brain injury is unique… we provide a range of services flexible to individual needs.
Headstart commenced in 1986 and over the past 27 years has developed a model that supports people with brain injury to pursue opportunities to link into their community and to follow their life choices as independently as possible. We generate opportunities for people to regain a connection with their community, change their environment to meet their needs, make choices about how they wish to live, how they spend their time and how to plan for their future.
The organisation secured 2 year Pilot Project funding from the Motor Accidents Authority . This recognition of the need for a model of service delivery, specifically designed to meet the complex issues faced by people with ABI was heartening. This funding commenced in 1992, and in 1994 the then Department of Ageing Disability and Home Care provided recurrent funding for the community access programme.
