Help with Education and Employment

How We can help with

Help with Education and Employment

Education: Starting, or returning, to school, college or university following a brain injury is a major milestone to be celebrated, whilst also bringing with it a whole new range of considerations for both parents, the local education authority and the school.

Arrangements put in place to support your child need to be regularly reviewed and updated as your child develops to ensure they are fully supported to allow them to achieve their full potential.

Many children can return to mainstream schools following a brain injury whilst some children, with more complex needs, will require a specialist school.

It is important to get the right advice and support as navigating what is available and what your child is legally entitled is difficult to navigate. We have a specialist panel of legal members who can help guide and advise you on how to get the right support in place.

Employment: Following a brain injury, it’s likely that you will be unable to immediately return to work, which can cause worry and stress. Depending on the severity of your brain injury, returning to work can be a milestone moment; for some, they will be able to return to their previous role, with little or no adjustment needed; for others, it may not be possible to return to their previous job or adjustments may need to be made to allow a safe return to work; for others, a return to work may never be possible.

Talking to an employment lawyer early in the recovery journey could help to plan your return to work, your rights to time off from work, rights in relation to sickness absence, disciplinary and capability procedures, discrimination or even termination of your employment.
