Further Details

We support adults with acquired brain injury come to terms with their new circumstances, re-integrate into life, and maximise opportunities and choices. We recognise individual needs and help people adjust to their new, and often changing situation and move forward.

In the King Lynn area we offer an activity and skills day service based in our centre which aims to promote independence and social inclusion.

Our approach is participative, with clients,staff, volunteers and family members working together. We also provide practical and emotional support for families and carers,recognising that they too are coping with new responsibilities.
