Do you want to know more about brain injury and how to support your service users?
The Foundation provides bespoke training for professionals who support homeless people, prisoners and ex-offenders to raise awareness of the problems individuals can face if suffering from a brain injury and give you the tools to support them.
The main aim of the training is to increase understanding of the impact brain injury has on people, and the effects on behaviour, emotions and social interaction, and to prepare staff to work with brain injured individuals.
If you would like to receive training and need more information then please contact The Foundation. We also deliver a more in-depth one day programme to medical and health professionals; ideal for those working in mental health, forensic and psychology teams with clinical backgrounds.
