Each year in May, Action for Brain Injury Week takes place. Launched by the brain injury charity Headway, the national campaign aims to raise awareness of brain injury and give a voice to those affected.
Here, at The Disabilities Trust, the week offers an opportunity to share with supporters about our Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) services and the individuals receiving rehabilitation in them.
BIRT is a division of The Disabilities Trust and the means by which we provide our brain injury services. We support people with disabilities resulting from brain injury including traumatic brain injury and stroke, and we aim to enable our service users to participate in life as fully as possible and to enjoy as much independence as they can.
Many of the people we support marked Action for Brain Injury Week with activities and events at their service.
