Training and workshops are delivered in response to identified training needs and have developed from the service's rolling programme of acquired brain injury awareness training that has been in operation since 2006. Training practitioners can help contribute to continued professional development.
It is recognised that training sessions provide useful practical advice for supporting a person with a brain injury and their families.
