The Acquired Brain Injury Trust

Our Objectives


The objectives of the Acquired Brain Injury Trust are to support the re-education, rehabilitation and improvement of quality of life of people in Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Gloucester and Herefordshire who have suffered an acquired brain injury due to accident, stroke or otherwise, and as a result have experienced loss of communication, cognitive and/or motor skills as well as personal confidence.

The Effects of Brain Injury


The effects of brain injury may be devastating, affecting not only the injured person, but also family, friends and work colleagues.  At any one time about 1,000,000 people in the UK are living with the results of a head injury.  The problems that arise do not always depend on the severity of the injury. People with an apparently minor injury may experience difficulties with memory, concentration, communication, problem solving, mood and personality changes, as well as fatigue and intolerance to their environment. People with more severe injuries may, in addition, experience complex physical and sensory difficulties. Stroke can have similar effects - about 100,000 people each year will experience their first stroke, of whom 10,000 are under the age of 55.
