Emilia and Jenny speak out about MBE awards honour

"The great honour that we've both been awarded, I don't see it at all for us because we're just starting off on this journey to try and raise awareness.

But it is for the tens of thousands of people that have written to us and the millions of people around the world that don't have a voice."

Emilia and Jenny Clarke speak about being awarded MBEs for services to People with Brain Injuries in the King’s New Year’s Honours list.

Their story about receiving the award, founding SameYou and the work with survivors, has gone around the world and highlighted just how vital rehabilitation is after brain injury.

Emilia also paid tribute to mum Jenny, also CEO and co-founder of SameYou, for getting the award, adding: “The fact that it’s us together is very sweet and lovely, but the reason why the charity really exists is because of all the work that my mum does.”

They are believed to be the first mother and daughter to be honoured with the same award in the same honours list.

SameYou works with partners globally to pilot ground-breaking therapies and lead vital new research into brain injury that wouldn’t be funded otherwise.

The charity has launched an appeal to treat more people with its pioneering group rehab programme, Neurorehabilitation Online. Just £10 would buy an online therapy session for a survivor – and it is SameYou’s vision to roll the programme out further into the UK.
