The information in this section is designed for people who have sustained a brain injury, their family members and carers.
It is organised into sections to give you an overview of brain injury, its causes and effects, then provide further information on rehabilitation and ongoing care.
The Practical issues section provides a wealth of information on issues such as claiming compensation, welfare benefits and holidays.
The My story section contains a wide range of real-life stories from people affected by brain injury. We know that everyone's brain injury is different, so the stories cover a range of different conditions and perspectives.
Finally, you can get further information by browsing our comprehensive range of factsheets, and don't forget to check out the Further information section to get more details of acquired brain injury.
