Memory Loss: A campaign to remember

Unfortunately, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone ABI Week, due to take place on 11 – 17 May. The awareness raising week will be rescheduled for the latter half of the year, date to be confirmed.

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 ringing 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. As well as case studies, social media posts and press work, it will also include a workshop for groups and branches to deliver with their service users and a survey.
