Help offered

We are delivering our Wellbeing Programme (for adults with acquired brain injury) and Family First Service (for families who have children aged 0 - 12 years with an ABI) via digital methods. For our Wellbeing groups we are having weekly Skype sessions whereby service users can chat with each other via video call and take part in interactive creative workshops with our Arts and Wellbeing Staff. This helps to reduce isolation as well as helping to reduce the added anxiety and stress our service users are feeling in these uncertain times.
Our Family First staff are delivering one to one and family sessions via Skype calls to ensure we are still delivering our rehabilitation services and providing strategies to bolster family cohesion under these current difficult circumstances.
We also have started a private Facebook members group where our families, service users, staff and volunteers can communicate with each other and share positive news stories. Furthermore we have developed a Wellbeing page on our website where we provide wellbeing information/advice/tips/challenges.
