Further Details

Our services are designed to meet each person's individual needs, abilities and preferences. We focus on supporting clients, their families and carers to come to terms with the changed circumstances brought about by brain injury. We do this by helping people to cope with the economic, physical, psychological and social consequnces of a brain injury.

We endeavour to create environments where individuals can maximise their potential at the same time promoting equality, choice and independence according to the Social Model of Disability.
