Further Details

We provide support to relatives of individuals who have suffered a brain injury in and around Northampton. Members are encouraged to meet and discuss their experiences with others who are or have been in a similar position. Expert professionals and invited speakers are able to provide information, advice and insight about life after brain injury, alongside discussions about how to improve coping and wellbeing. The Relatives Group meets on the third Thursday of every month from 7 to 9pm at the National Brain Injury Centre (Kemsley), St Andrew's Hospital, Northampton. Groups alternate between being an open discussion on one month to a meeting with an invited guest speaker on the alternate months.
