Theatre-street based law firm Hatch Brenner is delighted to once-again be working with their long-term community partner Headway Norfolk & Waveney the brain injury charity, to help raise awareness of their work through ABI Week 2018.
Kicking off on Monday 14 May, the charity will resume their takeover of a shop unit in Castle Mall for the week, showcasing artwork produced by their clients, and providing a place clients, their friends and family, colleagues and supporters can meet. Hatch Brenner will be helping to share the films five local Headway Norfolk & Waveney clients have made about their experiences of having a brain injury, and their journey towards recovery.
The week will culminate with Hats for Headway on Friday 18 May: Hatch Brenner staff and Headway Norfolk & Waveney supporters will be sporting wacky hats for the day, and making a donation to Headway Norfolk & Waveney; as well as posting pictures on social media to raise awareness of the charity’s work.
Colin Cook, Hatch Brenner Partner and brain injury specialist commented: “We are very much looking forward to supporting Action for Brain Injury Week 2018. The planned activities put people directly affected by brain injury at the heart of the awareness-raising work. Having Headway Norfolk & Waveney as a support service that we can refer clients and their families to is incredible, helping clients come to terms with what has happened, adjust and reshape. Access to early intervention and support services is vital in aiding rehabilitation.”
Laura Jones, Chief Executive of Headway Norfolk & Waveney added: “We’d like to thank Hatch Brenner for their continued support. The aim of the ABI Week campaign is to highlight the fact that brain injury doesn’t just affect the individual, but also their family, friends, colleagues, and many more relationships besides. We will be highlighting the ripple effect brain injury can have on many different lives, in many different ways, while demonstrating the various ways in which people can help the person with the brain injury to adapt and regain a degree of confidence and independence.”
