As a national network of specialist brain injury solicitors and other professionals, we are constantly meeting people affected by brain injury and those who support them.

Brain injury is such a sensitive and complex area that we’ve really come to value the importance of sharing experience, professional expertise and best practice across the sector, and we launched Brain Injury News to help do this.

Whilst the magazine is written with health and social care professionals particularly in mind, it is equally accessible to other people and carers involved with brain injured individuals.

You can download the current edition below.

Brain Injury News Issue 9 (Spring 2017)
Employment contributes to our wellbeing and sense of ‘self’ but many of those suffering brain injury find their capacity to return to a previous occupation compromised. In this edition we look at the importance of work within rehabilitation, how a return to work might be supported and managed, and what to think about if you employ a care team.
