One of the most common concerns from brain injury survivors contacting our helpline or posting on social media is the profound impact that memory problems can have on their lives and relationships post brain injury.

Indeed, in the last year memory was one of the most prevalent issue callers mentioned when contacting us.

Memory loss: A campaign to remember aims to raise awareness of the ways in which memory problems can affect brain injury survivors and their families. It will explore the impact of memory on relationships, recovery and returning to work. 

We'll be releasing the results of our survey into the impact of memory problems, as well as a wealth of personal stories, videos and information to help highlight this common and often devastating effect of brain injury.
