Dushal will work with other trustees, one of whom is former client Ryan Goodenough, to oversee governance and to contribute to fundraising efforts.
Headway Milton Keynes marked its 20th anniversary in December 2020. Although plans to celebrate had to be put on hold during lockdown, service manager Kirsty Rook said she very much hoped more events would take place this year.
The help centre, which moved to a more central location recently, has continued to run online support sessions including art, exercise and cognitive skills, as well as social 'drop ins' focusing on quizzes and discussions.
For many people living with brain injury, these sessions are the only personal contact they have, so have provided essential support during lockdown.
Meanwhile, the centre plans to reopen from next week for people unable to access online sessions and will hopefully be able to welcome more people as restrictions ease over the coming months.
Fundraising efforts, which as for most charities have been severely curtailed over the past year, will begin again in earnest as soon as possible. Volunteers have continued to contribute during lockdown, mainly through sponsored personal challenges, such as walks and bike rides.
Fieldfisher is very pleased to continue to support Headway's work. The Personal Injury team specialises in representing clients who have suffered serious brain injury following accidents on the road, at work and in other public places.
