Action for Brain Injury Week is led by charity Headway and to help raise awareness, The Children’s Trust is shining a light on the stories, experiences and knowledge of people with acquired brain injury.
We have spoken to some of the young people and professionals at The Children’s Trust about the difficulties of living with an acquired brain injury and how greater awareness and understanding can help.
In his blog,18 year-old Sam Norris shares his experiences of the hidden side of his brain injury.
In this interview, The Children’s Trust youth worker Donna Ware speaks about some of the challenges of a hidden disability experienced by the young people she supports, and some practical solutions they have put into practice.
And later in the week we will be hearing from Dr Jenny Jim, The Children’s Trust Consultant Psychologist, sharing her thoughts on acquired brain injury as a hidden disability, its challenges and the value of greater awareness.
