Please see the poster and the application form for more information.

That’s the equivalent of cycling from Moseley to Milton Keynes!

Muddo Sonahar

Muddo, who suffered a brain injury after an assault in 1986, first contacted Headway West Midlands through our Carers Service. He had limited mobility, communication difficulties due to asphasia, struggled with daily living tasks, and felt very isolated in his home. Muddo was referred to Lifestyles in 2011 for support, to develop: better coping strategies to help regain confidence to access the community, have support to use public transport, and reduce his isolation. Muddo now has paid lifestyle hours to support him with daily activities.

Today Muddo attends college one day a week independently, but has also been inspired to attend Community Steps and the Inclusions sports activities programmes, and is Headway’s most ardent supporter! He travels independently to swimming, bowling, gym, lunch clubs, cinema, physiotherapy and photography groups - whatever the activity, Muddo is there!

Muddo was motivated to attend the new Sports groups after it was launched in 2013 with a Big Lottery grant. Since he has been attending, Headway staff have noticed a marked improvement in Muddo’s balance and co-ordination, as well as improvement in confidence and communication. Muddo will now initiate conversations and is very much involved in group discussions.

“Headway have helped me in so many ways” said Muddo “Before Headway I was finding it difficult to stay on top of daily tasks. I had no self-confidence and rarely left my home. Now I am out all the time, either at the groups, or with my lifestyle support worker. I have managed to attend the groups by myself after support from my Lifestyles worker with travel training. My confidence has grown and I love to meet new people, and try new things. I have met some really nice people and formed some good friendships”.
