Raising awareness of the effects of brain injury is key to improving understanding of what is often referred to as an “invisible” or “hidden” injury.
Through our specialist training programmes we aim to:
Whether you are someone with a brain injury, a family member / carer or someone who works with or may come into contact with someone with a brain injury, we can provide a range of education and training options to meet your needs.
We offer relaxed and inclusive workshops across the county. These sessions provide information and practical strategies around some commonly experienced issues as well as a chance to learn specific skills such as horticulture.
We run Understanding Brain Injury Courses for professionals working in health and social care at venues across the county.
We can also deliver bespoke ‘in house’ training directly to your organisation based on the experience and needs of both your staff and your client group as well as interactive and child friendly talks to schools and other children’s groups. Please contact us to arrange your training.
