A brain injury can challenge every aspect of your life – walking, talking, thinking and feeling – and the losses can be severe and permanent. It can mean losing both the life you once lived and the person you once were.
We all think ‘it will never happen to me’, but every year around 350,000 people are admitted to hospital with an acquired brain injury. 
That’s one every 90 seconds.
It is one of the leading causes of death and disability in the UK, and its impact is continuing to grow as many brain injury survivors feel abandoned when they leave hospital due to the lack of rehab therapies available and not knowing where to turn to for help.
