Every 90 seconds someone in the UK is admitted to hospital with an ABI (click the image above to watch the film).
An Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is an injury caused to the brain since birth. There are many possible causes, including a fall, a road accident, a tumour and a stroke.
Every ABI is different and coming to terms with the effects of an ABI for individuals, and their families and friends, can be very distressing and difficult.
Headway Southampton's mission is to improve the lives and promote the independence of local brain injury survivors. To provide support and advice to their families, friends and carers. To raise awareness of the life changing effects of brain injury.
We are affiliated to Headway UK who have an extensive range of factsheets and publications available online to help answer any questions or concerns you may have.
