My story

[p]The difficulties a brain injury can cause may not be obvious to other people. Because of this it is often referred to as a hidden disability. It can change the life of the person with the brain injury and those around them.[/p][p]Together, we offer support and services to survivors of brain injury, their families and carers. We run a number of social events and trips throughout the year, and provide a wide range of information about life after brain injury.[/p][p]We aim to raise awareness of brain injury both to prevent them, and to promote understanding when they occur. We appear on local press and radio, and we roll out national Headway UK campaigns and news at a local level.[/p][p]We also engage with local stakeholders, including hospitals and commissioners to help improve services. We sit on a number of special interest groups to represent brain injury, and offer training days. We regularly support research undertaken nationally and at the University of Hull, and engage with local trainee psychologists to engage the next generation of clinicians.[/p]
