BRAIN INJURY FILM

MATRIX Neurological has created a short animated film called ‘Me and My Brain Injury’ that explains brain injury to a child or young person so that they can understand what has happened inside their head.

The innovative film has been developed with funding from the Goshen Trust and the Tees Valley Community Foundation.  The charity has received very positive comments from everyone who has viewed the film so far; including senior medical professionals.   The film is available for sale to help the charity with its fundraising activities; but will be given free to those families that the charity works with.   All income generated from the film sales will be reinvested back into the charity to enable them to support more brain injured children and their families.

If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the informative brain injury film, please contact us via our website or call 01642 989116.

We also offer the opportunity for businesses to sponsor copies of the ABI film by covering the purchase costs of a fixed number of ABI films, to enable it to be given free to families outside of the local area.  If any business is interested in sponsoring copies of the film, please contact Jan Rock or Ann Dale to discuss the available options.
