Anyone who has suffered a traumatic brain injury will know how difficult life can be afterwards but there is support at hand for people in the Falkirk district.

The local Headway group is affiliated with the national association and provides information, support and services to people with a brain injury, their families and carers who attend the group meetings.

The local group helps people understand all aspects of a brain injury by increasing awareness of brain injury and its consequences; providing and promoting improved approaches to brain injury screening, acute care, assessment, rehabilitation and social re-integration; assisting people with brain injuries to return to community living.

Stewart Shaw, a volunteer who runs the group which meets in Stenhousemuir, said: “We’re getting new members along to the group all the time and we can help them with their memory and concentration, which can be seriously affected after a brain injury.

“People who come along get a lot of encouragement.”
