Here at P.A.U.L For Brain Recovery we provide support and guidance for people affected by acquired brain injury (ABI). We work with each person to help them reach their full potential and overcome the subsequent challenges at different stages of their recovery.
All of our activities, whether it be in a one to one or group setting, aim to give service users the tools to manage the challenges of daily living following brain injury, thus helping them avoid falling in to crisis. We pride ourselves on enabling service users to take ownership of their own recovery journey.
A number of our activities aim to reduce social isolation by enabling those affected by brain injury to take part in group activities, forge new friendships and become part of new social groups.
The personal support plan offered at P.A.U.L For Brain Recovery may be made up of any of the following:
- Dedicated one to one support
- Goal setting
- Advocacy (support to access other relevant support/services)
- Structured one to one and group education sessions (daily structure, self-care, confidence building, wellbeing, coping strategies, the brain)
- Health & wellbeing activities (yoga, gym, walking group etc.)
- Family support workshops
- Peer mentoring (buddy support)
- Social time/groups
- Allotment project
- Social outings/day trips
We aim to provide a unique support plan for each person and identify any personal goals or aspirations they wish to achieve. Each support plan is reviewed every 3 months to celebrate achievements/progress made and to highlight any new or continued support needs.
