Hatch Brenner Solicitors are proud to be sponsoring the opening of a new brain injury rehabilitation facility in Kings Lynn on Friday 25 September from 9.30am – 3.30pm. The re-launch, by leading brain injury charity Headway Norfolk & Waveney, will provide a much needed hub for these services in the west of the County.
Colin Cook, Partner and Head of the Dispute Resolution Department specialising in brain injuries at Hatch Brenner in Norwich commented: “We are delighted to support such a wonderful charity and to see them continually striving to improve the care available to individuals and families following serious brain injury. As a member of the board of trustees, I am continually impressed by the dedication the team at the independent charity bring to offer specialist support to this growing client group.”
The new base will bring an enhanced Headway service to west Norfolk and taster activities will be available on the day including memory and cognitive function, yoga, creative sessions and more! Laura Jones, Director of Client Services at Headway said; “Whether you are a health or social care professional working with brain injury clients, a carer or family member affected, or you just want to know more about the hidden impact of a brain injury please come and see us. A brain injury brings unique challenges and our specialist occupational therapy experience and support helps those affected regain control of their lives.”
There were over 1,000 new acquired brain injuries across West Norfolk between March 2013 and March 2014. Every year these new cases are added to a growing community of people living with the affects of a brain injury.
Sue Whitaker, Chair of the Adult Social Care Committee at Norfolk County Council says; “We are delighted to be working with Headway in order to ensure that the right specialist support is available in our local community to help those affected by brain injury adjust and look after themselves again.”
