- One of the
themes of this year's Action for Brain Injury Week is to highlight the
inspiring work of carers.Brain injury doesn't just affect
individuals; it can transform the lives of entire families. Emotional and
behavioural changes in the individual can affect relationships and the
dynamic of the family.Caring
for someone with a brain injury can require a great deal of patience and
sacrifice and so on Thursday 17th May we recognise the role of
carers with a balloon launch on Frenchay Common.If you would like to take part please
contact us to buy a balloon for a minimum donation of £2.At 11am we will be sending up into the
sky a festival of balloons carrying special messages of thanks to
carers.It's sure to be an amazing
sight.To make the event even more
fun users of our services adopt a fancy dress theme for the event, this
year they will be dressing up as characters from film and TV!
