Action for Brain Injury Week 2021

This week is Action for Brain Injury Week 2021 and this year’s focus is ‘A life after lockdown?’

The Action for Brain injury campaign aims to provide a voice to survivors and carers and to assist them in explaining the particular challenges that they face as a result of their brain injury.

Action for Brain Injury week helps to raise awareness and provide positive messages and tools to help make a difference in people’s lives.

The COVID-19 lockdown has been hard on everyone.  Many individuals have been left isolated and lonely and it has had a profound effect on people’s mental wellbeing.

Individuals with Brain Injuries can have problems with their memory, speech or information processing and a lack of understanding regarding brain injuries can often leave survivors lacking in confidence when interacting with society.   Coupled with the repeated lockdowns of the last 14 months this isolation and loneliness has the potential to become unbearable.
