Hilary Meredith Solicitors Limited fully supports Headway’s Action for Brain Injury Week which takes place from the 12 – 18 May 2014.
With cuts to welfare benefits, local authority and NHS budgets continuing to impact on people’s lives, Headway aims to be the voice of brain injury survivors across the UK when it uses ABI Week 2014 to say ‘Don’t cut me out!’
The campaign aims to increase awareness of the plight of individuals and families affected by brain injury whose access to vital support services is being reduced as a result of funding cuts and welfare reforms.
To help Headway understand how welfare benefits reform and changes to local authority funding is affecting people with a brain injury, the charity conducted a survey to gather people’s experiences. The results will be announced next week.
As always, the week will also feature Hats for Headway Day, which this year takes place on Friday 16 May.
