New resources to help people return to work after brain injury

Mon 22 Aug 2016

To support those wishing to return to work after a brain injury, Headway has launched a new set of factsheets addressing different aspects of this important topic. 

After making a level of recovery after brain injury, people are often keen to get back to a similar routine to that which they had before their injury.

For many, this involves returning to work. However, employment relies on a wide range of skills, many of which can be impacted following a brain injury such as multitasking, attention, memory, making decisions and being able to work in busy, noisy environments. Returning to work can therefore become a challenge, even if returning to a job previously held; however, with the right kind of information and support, it can be achievable.

To support those wishing to return to work after a brain injury, Headway has launched a new set of factsheets addressing different aspects of this important topic. The factsheets offer information and useful suggestions on a wide range of issues such as services and schemes to support a return to work, legislations to protect brain injury survivors within the workplace and a range of other ideas for getting back to employment such as volunteering, self-employment or returning to education.

The following PDF factsheets are now available to download for free from Headway’s information library, and you can find out more on the main returning to work after brain injury page.

Patience, my employer listening to my needs, and finding the quietest space to work in. It's isolating socially but perfect professionally.
