I have recently started to volunteer for a local agency funded by lottery to support people in East Sussex regarding housing, understanding their tenancy , supporting tenancy , manage finances, assisting vulnerable people with addiction and homelessness.
The organisation have asked if I could prepare a training package and inform employees on brain injury as a day's training. I would love to have the opportunity to raise awareness of brain injury. I have not worked since my accident 3 1/2 years ago, but hoping to be able to produce a package. My brain injury was ABI with a bleed, no surgery, but has left me with the usual cognitive, fatigue left sided weakness, emotions and anger control, but I am aware there are many others with differing types of BI. It seems quite vast area to me and aware I need to keep concise as possible, but wonder if others could help me with key points of other types of brain injury, the ongoing symptoms, and what others would like to say to teach and raise awareness . all tips and help would be gratefully received :). I am not sure where to start and feel a little overwhelmed !!!
