Headway, the Brain Injury Association, are supporting Action for Brain Injury Week with their campaign “Don’t Cut Me Out”, stating “The campaign aims to increase awareness of the plight of individuals and families affected by brain injury whose access to vital support services is being reduced as a result of funding cuts and welfare reforms”. We raised some of these issues in our earlier article “Impact of the welfare reforms on brain injury clients”.

To understand how funding cuts are affecting people after brain injury, Headway carried out a survey, the results of which will be revealed during Action for Brain Injury Week. 

Similarly, the Child Brain Injury Trust have set up numerous events during Action For Brain Injury Week for example running events, cycling events, mud challenges, walking events and skydiving. Further details of which can be found on their website (http://childbraininjurytrust.org.uk/support-us/campaigns/events-2014/).

Leading up to Action for Brain Injury Week, the Brain Injury Group are carrying out an online survey about the effects of brain injury on personal relationships.  Their aim is to use the results to highlight the issues and the support and information that will help individuals with brain injury. In our earlier blog “Hormone dysfunction and sexual problems after brain injury” we highlighted some of the problems suffered by individuals who sustain brain injury and how this can have an effect on relationships. 

We at hlw Keeble Hawson Solicitors, as experienced Brain Injury Solicitors, recognise the importance of promoting and raising awareness of brain injury and welcome Action for Brain Injury Week.
