Acquired Brain Injury can affect anyone at any time, regardless of age, gender or lifestyle. It is often caused by:
Each year as many as 1 million people attending hospital in the UK will have sustained head injury. Of these, about 135,000 are confirmed as having a brain injury. The problems caused by a brain injury may not be obvious to other people. Brain injury can, however, completely change the life of the survivor and the lives of those around them.
Regardless of the cause Headway Black Country can help. We are dedicated to supporting brain injury survivors, their carers and families whose lives are often turned upside down by a brain injury.
We have a small, expert team that can help guide you to the information and support you may need. We also provide a specialist Brain Injury Rehabilitation Service that offers a wide range of activities designed to help brain injury survivors relearn lost skills and gain new ones.
Our web site seeks to provide some insights into the effects of brain injury and an introduction to the work of Headway Black Country. More importantly though, if you have suffered a brain injury or are a carer or family member of a brain injury survivor and need advice or support please do not hesitate to get in touch.
