What is a brain injury?
A brain injury can happen to anyone, at anytime. Every 90 seconds, someone is admitted to hospital with an acquired brain injury. There can be caused by strokes, car accidents, assaults, infections etc. Brain injury survivors are affected in many areas, including cognitive, physical and emotional. These difficulties have a huge impact on family life, work and society as a whole.
What do we offer?
We provide support groups, one-to-one sessions, health and well-being programmes and advice. We also provide support to healthcare professionals working in brain injury, for example, supporting the brain injury clinic in St Mary’s Hospital Paddington. We also partner up with other charities to provide resources or activities.
Please help us to help brain injury survivors.
One of the most common things we hear from brain injury survivors is that they get very little support once they leave hospital. We help to bridge that gap, providing advice and support at a crucial time for survivors, their families and carers.
We rely on fundraising to do this work.
