Brain Injury in Young People…After Matters

Thank you to all who attended our free event held on Wednesday 20th March at The Midland Hotel in Manchester. The day proved to be huge success as we had an overwhelming response from our attendees. The guests first listened to the journeys of some of our young people living with an acquired brain injury and the challenges they face on a daily basis. Everyone then took part in the interactive workshop to see how we can all help to bridge the gaps and improve quality of life.

We also had a very informative presentation from Dr Ayaz Bhuta MBE PLY and Rhonda McPhail, both from SCOPE who explained how they can help to support our young survivors getting back into further education and employment with their Career Pathways and how they can help with social isolaton with thier Youth Community Collective (YCC).

Our new grant-making project was also launched at our event which was attended by young survivors
and their families, along with professionals working across the field of brain injury.

We had some great feedback too!

A fantastic event for a charity doing amazing things. Hearing the inspiring stories of young people who have experienced such significant trauma through brain injury, the impact it has had on their lives and how they are thriving has really moved me today. Also how families have come together to do something positive is truly compelling.
Thank you!
