During the COVID-19 global pandemic many people experienced significant social isolation for the first time. People with brain injury know all about this. All too often this is their day-to-day experience following a brain injury. While life goes on as normal around them, their own social networks can become fractured leaving them feeling forgotten, invisible and alone. This inspired our theme for this year’s Brain Injury Awareness Week:
‘Welcome to our World’ : Social Isolation after Brain Injury
This Brain Injury Awareness Week we are exploring stories from people with brain injury and their families about what has worked for them in combating the social isolation that everyone else is now better able to understand.
