Being the carer of someone with a brain or head injury can be tough.

Besides the support of a professional team, you may also want to speak to other people directly affected by a brain injury in the family.

We work closely with Brain Injury is BIG (B.I.G.), a registered charity for the family members of people with severe brain injuries. They have a website, an online discussion forum and a telephone helpline so that connecting with someone who knows exactly what you’re going through is never too far away.
