This is a peer support group for parents, carers or family members who are affected by childhood acquired brain injury. All group members have been added to this group by a member of the Child Brain Injury Trust.
The group has been set up to be ‘private’ so that no one can see what is posted unless they have been invited to join the group. To be added to this forum you must be currently supported by one of our Child and Family Support Coordinators. Hopefully this means that we can all feel free to share any concerns, questions or support and advice about our experiences.
As we all share similar reasons for using this forum, I don’t think we will have any problems with members being abusive etc. but it’s a good idea to set guidelines from the beginning. Therefore, let’s be aware of ethics, positive conduct and etiquette when using this forum. Please refrain from using any abusive or offensive language. Any posts deemed to be offensive will be removed from the forum.
We would also emphasise that any advice or guidance given by forum members does not reflect the views of the Child Brain Injury Trust and if you have any health concerns about your child, we would always recommend that you seek advice from your healthcare provider.
Many parents and carers have expressed that they would like to meet with others who have had similar experiences, however they aren’t able to travel. We are aware that having a child with an acquired brain injury can be isolating at times, therefore, this group is a parent-led way of sharing experiences and offering support amongst each other.
