The closing date for the submission of applications has now passed and we have shortlisted candidates for interview. Watch this space for the introduction the successful candidate. Who will become our second Family Support Worker to assist families affected by childhood brain injury in the Tees Valley area?
"Parent-supported interventions after paediatric ABI bring reductions to the cost to society"
"With support parents cope better so the child has a better recovery"
"NHS clinicians struggle with what intervention to prioritise in paediatric neuro-rehabilitation due to limited clinical time and the complexity of needs. Children, clinicians, parents and schools all have different neuro-rehabilitation priorities"
"Strength-based family intervention after pediatric ABI is essential. Parents need to be equipped with the skills to cope and advocate for the child."
"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
"Intensive and individualized approaches work. A one-size-fits-all approach doesn't. You have to make it relevant to the child."
"Thousands of children and young people living in the UK today without the help and support that can make a huge difference to their lives"
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"We would like to see earlier identification and support for children with brain injuries to help them succeed in school."
"We are medical practitioners. The real experts are the parents. Over the last 35 years they have taught me everything I know"
