About us

The Greater Manchester Head Forward Centre (HFC) is an independent charity (no.1089450) based in Withington, Manchester. Established in 2000, our main purpose is helping people who have suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) to re-integrate socially.

We are located on the ground floor of Withington Methodist Church. At our Centre we provide a range of hands-on activities which are both helpful and fun. It is a friendly place where those who may have become socially isolated because of brain injury can join in activities at their own pace. We are also here to offer head injury information and individual or family carer counselling.

The HFC charity has a management committee and Board of Trustees and we draw heavily on their goodwill and voluntary professional services. In line with current good practice our trustees, staff and volunteers are all DBS checked-and we greatly appreciate the interest and support of our patrons:
