It’s not too late to contribute to the Government’s brain injury strategy

In December 2021, following good work and lobbying by various charities, including HeadwayThe Disabilities TrustThe Child Brain Injuries TrustThe Children’s Trust and UK Acquired Brain Injury Forum, the Government announced a plan to develop a vital and long overdue national strategy for acquired brain injury (ABI), and is calling for evidence and ideas from people who have experienced brain injury, whether directly or indirectly, including patients, family members, carers, practitioners or other professionals.

ABI can have a devastating effect on an individual, their family and friends and can often give rise to complex, long-term problems affecting function, cognition, personality, relationships and independence.  Even mild brain injuries can have lasting effects.

People living with complex health and neurological conditions need support from a range of services.  The Minister of State for Care and Mental Health, Gillian Keegan, and the MP for Rhondda, Chris Bryant, are leading to the consultation with the aim of securing a more collaborative cross departmental approach to improve the support provided by statutory services.

The easiest way to contribute to the Acquired Brain Injury Call for Evidence is to complete the online survey which closes on 6th June 2022.
