ABI Week 2021: A life of lockdown?

Wed 24 Feb 2021

A life of lockdown? will focus on social isolation after brain injury, a problem we know has been exacerbated by the Covid-19 pandemic. Action for Brain Injury Week will this year run from 17-23 May.

Covid-19 has been tough on everyone. Repeated lockdowns have left people isolated and lonely, often harming their mental wellbeing.

But imagine living every day of your life in isolation…

The effects of brain injury, such as problems with memory, information processing, or speech, compounded by a lack of understanding of this often hidden disability, can leave survivors lacking the confidence to interact with society.

Let someone know they’re not alone. Reach out to help out.

The campaign will aim to give a voice to survivors and carers to help them better explain to their friends and families the challenges they face as a result of brain injury. As well as having an awareness-raising focus, it will also have positive messages and tools to help people make a difference, such as guides and top tips for friends of brain injury survivors and carers.

We will release further details on our website and social media in due course.
