A successful ‘Heads Up’ wellbeing event was held in Lowestoft, attracting around 100 attendees.

The free function was organised by East Coast Community Healthcare (ECCH) and Everyone Active at the Waterlane Leisure Centre.

The day centred on providing support and advice for people affected by head injury, stroke, Alzheimer's, and similar conditions.

Various organisations attended the event, including Headway, Stroke Association, Victoria Road Surgery, Alzheimer’s Society and ECCH's Memory Impairment, Neurology and Speech and Language Therapy services.

Ian Hutchison, ECCH chief executive, said: “The event was a great opportunity for providers of services and a number of voluntary and charitable organisations to be in one place and able to solve real problems for current and potential service users.”

ECCH, a community interest company providing a range of health services, is owned by its staff.

The organisation uses any surplus resources for the benefit of communities in Norfolk and Waveney.
