My Story

Headway Central Lancashire’s my story project enables clients to tell their own personal journey of rehabilitation after serious injury and illness.

My Story October 2023 Mark Herbert

After Mark started suffering seizures in 2020, he underwent tests and was diagnosed with a brain tumour, read his story below.

New My Story 2023/24

In support of My Story, we have received a generous donation in memory of late David Hewitt who was a valued volunteer of Headway Central Lancashire. David published his own story ‘The Journey that changed my life’ in 2020 and his family wanted to support others to do the same.

The process involves meeting with a staff member or volunteer and talking through their personal experience of recovery.

Tell your story:

Each participant will receive a certificate and voucher for £25.00 for a retailer of their choice.

Your story can be told in person at any of our community sessions or at public events we organise.

The my story project has been of great inspiration and gives a tremendous insight into another’s rehabilitation journey.

  • Photographs and quotes can be used to make your story come alive.
  • Others benefit from you sharing your experiences.
  • Others appreciate problems and difficulties as well as achievements.

If you are interested in telling your story to a live audience, for inclusion in the newsletter or website please contact Margaret on 07808648728 or the Headway team on 01772 791460.
