The Research Group commissioned a film maker to create a film about the IMPACT! project for use on Headway Cambridgeshire's website and social media. Members of the group interviewed and the candidates themselves and selected Derek Boyes to create the final film.

As well has showcasing the different outcomes of the project, the purpose of the film is also to show that the Research Group are actively involved in their community and to highlight that disability is not a barrier to doing this! We hope people will feel interested, intrigued and inspired after watching it to find out more about the research, WW1, brain injury and the work of Headway Cambridgeshire.

You can find out more about our film-maker Derek on his website.

IMPACT! Brain Injuries and WWI

The Hospital Brain Injury Co-ordinator became someone who absolutely understood how I felt, I didn’t need to explain. I could talk about my fears and worries. She was such a great support through the difficult days, but could also celebrate the small step successes, which was important to me.
