Life After Brain Injury



This is a podcast by Will Perringwood and his wife Amy all about living life after a brain injury. Will suffered a bleed on the brain in March 2013 and spent 6 months in hospital and ever since has been recovering from physical and hidden effects of his brain injury. Will is passionate about thriving not just surviving after a brain injury. We hope through this podcast we can spread the message that there is life after brain injury and it is a great life - just a new normal! We also want everyone to know about the amazing work of Headway, they helped us enormously and we hope to give back even slightly!What can you expect? Our hope is to interview different people with different brain injuries and share these amazing stories of bravery and hope.Hope you enjoy Will + Amy Perringwood

    Hi we are Will and Amy Perringwood. We are a newly married couple embarking on a new adventure - our own podcast. In 2013, I (Will) had a bleed on the brain and over the course of the last four years I have been striving to put myself back together. Now as Amy and I feel we have achieved so much together - including expecting our first child in August - we wanted to give back to Headway and encourage other brain injury survivors. Here is a trailer for the podcast and some idea as to what to expect from each episode. For more information visit
