The Get A-Head Charitable Trust supports projects and activities that will benefit those who suffer from head and neck disease, and where support is not available through public funding.
Our objective is to directly help improve the quality of life for those who suffer from head and neck diseases, and their carers. We feel this can be done by funding four main areas:
1) Equipment – Many of the larger or more specialised pieces of equipment just cannot be funded by the NHS, so this is where Get A-Head can help.
2) Research – Unless we can understand how a disease works at its most basic level, it’s difficult to develop new treatments. Sometimes these developments are time-consuming and expensive. This is where we can help, by funding specialist research fellowships into thyroid cancer and other head and neck conditions and supporting the consumable costs.
3) Education – Sharing information via lecturing on relevant courses, production of editorials and reviews in associated medical journals, and assisting specialist training for nurses and other healthcare professionals – these are all areas where Get A-Head is keen to assist with continued funding.
4) Complementary Therapy – We fund an innovative complementary therapy service that helps those undergoing traditional medical treatments for cancer and related conditions.
