1 Year On - Patient Benefits

In our first year we focused on three goals:

1. Funding groundbreaking, innovative research into new therapies and recovery programs. We have major initiatives with world class hospitals and universities in progress.

2. Raising global awareness of how widespread brain injury really is. We have already created community of over 38,000 supporters, fundraisers, social media influencers, survivors and carers. We have received over 1400 stories about your personal brain injury recovery and we'll be sharing what we've heard from these stories soon.

3. Training of advanced brain injury nurses and developing nursing courses. We have commissioned a unique Masters degree education programme for advance level practitioners to address the holistic rehabilitation of the brain, body & mind.

Our first year has delivered practical help and tangible improvements in recovery, but we know we have so much more to do. With your continued help, we’ll get there.

Please donate to help us continue our work to improve recovery for young adults after brain injury and stroke.

Here is some of the work we have proudly supported over the last year…
