Maxine Hayden

Mother of Matthew Hayden and co-founder, chair and trustee of After Matters.

Family life had been incredibly difficult after Matthew sustained his brain injury, so much so, that I took some much needed time out from working full time as I was deeply affected by what had happened to my son Matthew and the nature in which he sustained his brain injury, but I am now back working full time and I dedicate my spare time to managing the charity and helping other families going through the same journey we have been through.

I am married to my biggest supporter Andy and we also have a wonderful daughter Ava and I am also step-mum to Chris and grandma to four gorgeous little boys.

I feel I have achieved and learned a lot both in life and work, enabling me to use my transferrable professional skills and life experience for the After Matters charity, and also being a mum of a brain injury survivor, I feel I can help other survivors and families living life after a brain injury.
