"Action for Brain Injury Week" starts on Monday 8th May 2017.
Research as referenced on the linked article by The Child Brain Injury Trust below "shows that of 5700 children (under 15 yrs) included in a study of head injuries sustained in 2009/10, 19% were under 1 year old. A further 30% were under 4 years old. The research comprises figures from 216 hospitals across the UK, during the six months between September 2009 and February 2010. That’s a lot of children and young people who have sustained head injuries".
If you would like to learn more about how to endeavour to reduce the risk of accidental brain injury and how to spot the symptoms of brain injury then the attached is a must read.

When we think of brain injury we often think of falls and accidents, however there are other causes too. It’s vital that we have an understanding of these conditions as little ones can’t tell us what is wrong or how they are feeling. Illnesses such as meningitis can also result in a brain injury as it affects the protective membranes around the brain and spinal cord. Our campaign will also highlight the signs and symptoms of meningitis. The key message here is if you are concerned about a child in your care, seek medical help as soon as you can. During Action for Brain Injury Week we will be delivering awareness sessions targeting day cares, playschools and nurseries. If you would like to book a session please call our team on 01869 341075,
