Could you be a Headway Trustee?

We have a great bunch of Trustees but need some extra skills to help direct our future plans. We warmly welcome enquiries from people who have time to volunteer to lead us, particularly those from West Sussex and from minority communities.

We hope to find new voluntary Trustees with experience in the following areas and will warmly welcome your enquiry:


Our very special charity supports people living with an acquired brain injury and their family carers. Established for 32 years we need to continue to grow to reach new town communities and help more people in West Sussex.

We would like to hear from people who are dynamic and can inject new ideas. Can you bring a health, care or business perspective to our decision-making? You may have lived experience of brain injury, be a carer or be from an under-represented background.

For an informal chat or for more information please call

Chair of Trustees, Michael Gaughan on 07796 140 963


Chief Executive, Jennie Musgrove on 07741 855 009.

One of our trustees is Mark O’Hara.  As a Chartered Accountant and finance director to several Sussex businesses, Mark has a particular interest in supporting local businesses having lived in Newick with his family for more than 20 years He was first approached by Headway 10 years ago and has served as a trustee ever since.  Most of his tenure has been against a backdrop of falling budgets for Adult Social Care, so his experience in managing tight finances has been useful!  He also suffered a minor stroke  some years ago, so has first had experience of brain injury.

Mark says “It is a privilege to serve as a trustee for Headway.  I can’t claim that the financial situation has been anything but challenging, but the commitment and energy of the people at Headway is inspirational and the results I have seen them achieve are truly life changing.  Headway serves the whole of Sussex and makes a massive contribution to the lives of thousands of brain injury survivors and their families.”

We look forward to hearing from you.
