Our charity of the year




Throughout 2024, the DTA will be supporting the charity Headway. Brain injury can challenge every aspect of your life - walking, talking, thinking, feeling - and the losses can be severe and permanent. We all think 'it will never happen to me', but every year around 350,000 people are admitted to hospital with an acquired brain injury. That's one every 90 seconds.

Whether the result of a trauma, stroke, tumour, haemorrhage or infection - a brain injury can happen to anyone, at any time. Headway is the UK-wide charity that works to improve life after brain injury by providing vital support and information services to thousands of individuals and families each year.

The charity also campaigns to increase awareness and reduce the incidence of brain injury. But they couldn't do this without the generous support of organisations and their employees across the UK. That's why we've connected with the Headway as together we can achieve so much more.

We encourage you to give through our Just Giving page.


If you would like to donate to Headway, please donate to our JustGiving Page

But dropping a donation isn't the only way to support this cause. Give your preloved items to one of Headway's charity shops in your local community, help their dedicated teams and devote time to volunteer or even care to take on your own trek of challenge in aid of Headway.

Spread the word by supporting Headway's campaign work or share your own skills and expertise to develop Headway's national services - then ask those closest to you to repeat and do the same.

A brain injury can happen to anyone, at any time. When it does, Headway is there to help.
