The challenges carers and families face in dealing with a relative with brain injury can seem overwhelming, but there is so much support out there if you know where to find it. We have listed below just a few of the potential sources of help you might be able to access, those who should at the very least know who else might be able to help you . But if there is any specialist help you require or if you are not able to get what you need then please contact us and we will do what we can to assist.
