Supporting you living life after brain injury

Providing inclusion and support for young people living with an acquired brain injury.

After Matters aim to provide inclusion and support for young people (aged 16-25) living with an acquired brain injury within the Greater Manchester area.

After a brain injury, it’s once you get back home from hospital that is where you realise the journey to recovery is only just beginning. Many brain injury survivors feel abandoned once they leave hospital and they just don’t know where to turn to for help.

After Matters is here to help and support you if you have been impacted by brain injury, or if you are caring for a loved one with a brain injury. It can be overwhelming and you may feel like nobody understands, and you don’t know what to do. But you don’t have to fight this battle alone. There are millions of people that have experienced brain injury and understand what you are going through.

Contact us to talk for support or advice on where to get help, or take a look at our Get Help section – you are not alone!
