Brain injuries can have catastrophic consequences for an individual, their family and friends.
Things that could be done previously without even thinking about it can suddenly present fresh challenges as aspects of life are relearned.
For many with a brain injury the effects will be both life-changing and permanent. Rehabilitation, care and support will be critical to help regain confidence and find solutions to the everyday challenges that now exist.
