It’s a Family Affair

Wednesday 29th March 2017
Grand Station


For our 9th Annual Conference we are putting all the focus on the reason the charity exists – families affected by childhood acquired brain injury (ABI). “100% of delegates rated last year’s conference excellent or good, with content ‘definitely appropriate’ for attendees”

2017-venueWe have deliberately chosen a more intimate and homely venue for our 2017 Conference, easily accessible by public transport (with car parking) with the Grand Junction, Wolverhampton – a historic Grade II listed railway station, that Isambard Kingdom Brunel was involved in building. With our theme of the never ending journey that families face, it seems appropriate to gather at a railway station where so many journeys have started from in years gone by.

Our 2017 Conference, It’s a Family Affair, will take a journey through the key issues that families face, and provide answers to how professionals can help to support the needs of the family as a whole, in order to ensure that the child affected by ABI receives the very best possible support along the way.

We will stop at various stations along the way and explore topics that really do impact on the family, such as parental relationships, impact on siblings, the changes to the family, benefits of travel with other families, sleep issues, and of course how to support the families themselves.  We will do this through a series of 30 minute presentations from engaging speakers who come from NHS, Private Practice, Academia and of course families themselves.

Our audience – this event will be of interest to anyone who works with or support children and their families following childhood acquired brain injury, those who we think should come on board are –

Psychologists, Specialist Nurses,  Physiotherapists, Paediatricians, Speech and Language Therapists,
