We are delighted to support Headway Plymouth as our Charity of the Year for 2022.

Headway Plymouth is a specialist organisation that support and meet the needs of adults with acquired brain injuries and associated neurological disorders. There is additional provision to support carers, family and friends in the local area and surrounding districts.

The organisation works alongside people who have varying abilities and needs ranging from mild, moderate or complex- including physical, psychological, emotional, communication, cognitive and behavioural difficulties.

Wolferstans are delighted to support the charity this year and will be playing a role in supporting the refurbishment of the Headway House located in Devonport Park. Staff will be encouraged to volunteer and raise vital funds to provide the supplies required.

2021 Charity of the Year

Our Charity of the Year for 2021 was Improving Lives Plymouth.

As a long established organisation, working within the city of Plymouth and the surrounding area, Improving Lives Plymouth provides support to meet the needs of individuals, the community and voluntary organisations.

They run information, advice and support services for people with disabilities and long-term health conditions and have two main locations in Plymouth in the City Centre and Mannamead.

We were delighted to support the charity throughout the year with a variety of fundraising and supporting their events for service users, and as a result of our team’s efforts were able to raise £3000.
