Action for Brain Injury Week 2022

Every year around 2,000 people sustain a brain injury in Northern Ireland and many more are living with the long term effects of brain injury, which can sometimes be unseen. This year Action for Brain Injury Week in Northern Ireland will run in line with the Headway UK theme, ‘See the hidden me’.

ABI Week runs from 16 – 22 May and the partners in the ABI Working Group, which includes Brain Injury Matters, The Cedar Foundation, Child Brain Injury Trust and Headway UK in partnership with the Department of Health and Public Health Agency, are hoping that the many other organisations in NI supporting survivors of brain injury and their families will use the opportunity to raise awareness of the issues.

The campaign will focus on what can be for many brain injury survivors, a hidden disability. See the hidden me will raise awareness and understanding of the often misunderstood symptoms of a brain injury and work to alleviate the challenges, and frustrations, survivors face. The campaign will also be an opportunity for service providers to highlight the supports available to individuals and families affected by brain injury.

The main focus of the campaign is a video which has been produced by the partner organisations and which includes messages from survivors and carers about what they would like people to know about life with the hidden effects of brain injury.

If you would like any further information you can contact the ABI Working Group via Cedar (communications@cedar-foundation.org).
