Family First Service

Does your child have an acquired brain injury?  Is this having an impact on your daily life?
If yes, the Family First Service may be for you.

The Family First Service is designed and dedicated to empower families to support children who have sustained an acquired brain injury (ABI).  The Family First Service recognises that the whole family system is affected when a child sustains an ABI. The programme works with the whole family unit to enable everyone to better manage the impact of ABI in daily life.

Who can apply?
Anyone can make a referral, whether you are a family member, social
worker, GP, counsellor or teacher.

How do I apply?                                                                                                                     A referral form can be accessed on the Family First Service section of the Brain Injury Matters website
