Training services for professionals in forensic settings

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 Foundation provides brain injury awareness training for professionals who support homeless people, offenders or those on remand, and ex-offenders. ‚Äč

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

Designed for front line service staff working directly with service users within the homeless or criminal justice system, the training provides insight into the common presentation of brain injury, how to identify someone who might have a brain injury and expert guidance on how you can support people with a brain injury.

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.
