The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT) has a forensic in-reach service which works with people in prisons, young offender institutions, and those on probation who have a brain injury. Our Linkworker Support Service includes screening for individuals with brain injury, staff training, interventions and support tools.
We also deliver specialist brain injury training to clinical psychologists, forensic psychologists, front-line staff and other professionals working in forensic settings.

Our training programmes are delivered by experienced staff. The main aim of the programmes is to increase understanding of the impact of brain injury on individuals, recognise the effects on behaviour, emotions and social interaction, and to prepare staff to work with brain injured individuals.
