Reports

Whilst we do not directly undertake research, as part of our service delivery we gather a lot of insightful information.  With the permission of our families, we collate this information into reports to help raise awareness of the real life issues that brain injured children and their families face.  Our reports have been shared with MP’s and Multi Agency Partnership boards to try to influence Government Policy and key local leaders.  Others have followed our lead in similar ways.

Below are listed some of the report previously disseminated to key players.  They make shocking reading.   Over time, we will add any more reports that we produce, to this page.
