Brain injury awareness training – support people living with a brain injury

We offer brain injury awareness training courses to educate and support people and organisations who care for those living with the impact of brain injury.

Our courses are designed to:

  • provide information and educate audiences on how the brain works
  • help you understand what it means to sustain a brain injury and the ways in which this can affect the individual

We offer a range of training sessions from short talks and 3-hour workshops to whole day courses, for groups of all sizes.

All sessions are tailored to your unique requirements. Whether you’re an individual looking for practical advice to improve your confidence in supporting people with brain injury, or an organisation where your employees would benefit from a better understanding of brain injury, we can provide the right training for you.

We incorporate a range of learning activities into our training sessions including case studies, group discussions, quizzes and matching cards, depending on what you or your organisation find most useful. We provide training in the format that best suits you – from a workshops that encourage greater audience participation and interactive learning, to short informational talks that provide a concise overview.
