We are about to launch a new project aimed at reaching many more adults and families living with the effects of acquired brain injury. 'Heading Up and Heading Out' will incorporate a buddy support service and drop in centres in Maidstone and Edenbridge. We are recruiting for two new staff posts details of which can be found on our work for us page.
More information about our new services can be found on the website or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the centre on 01892 619001. This project has been entirely funded by The Big Lottery.

In 2011 volunteer Astrid ran a set of creative writing sessions, enabling members to explore poetry as a means of self expression. The sessions were a huge success, the first seven culminating in a presentation at Trinity Theatre and Arts Centre in Tunbridge Wells. Following this, volunteer Kathy suggested publishing the poems in a book to take them to a wider audience, and took on the role of editor.
The poetry enabled members to express pent-up emotions as well as their creative ideas: in the book there are soaring highs, angry rumblings and dark lows, a love of nature and a sense of wonder.
Poetry in Mind consists of eleven chapters, each dealing with a different subject or type of poem and can be purchased from our online shop.
