Latest update

We would like to take this opportunity to update you on the charity’s activities during these recent difficult times.

Brainwave Independence Group, like many other charities, have unfortunately had to cancel all fundraising events this Summer.

However, the good news is the Charity Shop on London Road South and the Donation Centre at Tennyson Road are scheduled to re-open on June 15th!

In line with government guidelines, each venue will have a ‘cleaning station’ to ensure all donated items are thoroughly cleaned before resale, following the standard 72 hour quarantine.

Full PPE will be available for all staff and hand sanitisers are in place for customers at points of sale and throughout the two premises. We will be limiting the number of people in the shops to two at any time and social distancing will be respected.

We will notify you as soon as our programme of events can be confirmed for you to attend, either as a stallholder, fundraiser or a visitor.

Brainwave Independence Group have exciting plans ahead and we look forward to updating you as soon we can, including information about how you can get involved too.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Take care & stay safe!


The Brainwave Independence Group was founded to provide quality support for people with brain injury and disability. We are a local charity, set up to ensure that the people we support receive the very best to enable them to achieve their full potential.

We currently provide care packages including advocacy, assessment, advice and guidance through a labyrinth of professional services, from benefits GP services Day Care and respite provision.

Our aim is to open a centre for community-based activities, offering a supportive environment that provides a rolling programme of activities for people with brain injuries and related disabilities, together with their families and supporters. 

It is hoped that our centre, to be named “The Point”, will become the central hub for the charity and that it will provide an ever-increasing level of services to people who need support.

I don’t feel alone anymore, coming across this group of people that understand me, has given me the inspiration to carry on. I feel like I am a part of society again!


Being a part of the charity & taking on the responsibility in counting and banking the monies we all raise, gives me a great sense of meaning in my life & feeling important as a person.


I have been given a new lease of life! My ideas are put into practice; I can now make things in the woodwork area despite being paralyzed on my right side. Making new friends & meeting people in the same position as me, is helping me to move forward with my life!


After having my RTA in 2004 being left registered blind/ severe partial sighted, having a brain injury and epilepsy, Brainwave has given me hope that I have a future ahead as I am able to help make deliveries to people who are facing the same challenges as myself. I have been given a new lease of life and quite excited by the things that we are achieving with the charity and community. I love the social interaction as I can meet new people and help others along the way.
