Self Referral

Parents can refer their child or young person at any time if you think that our services would be of value. We would not expect children or young people to refer themselves without the express consent of their parents. We know how important the family is in the recovery and rehabilitation process following an acquired brain injury.

Our service model takes the ‘whole family’ approach and is designed to work closely with parents at all times to ensure they are included in the rehabilitation process and that their views and opinions are taken into consideration, as well as those of the child or young person.

Please contact us to discuss your needs with a member of staff.
