Action for Brain Injury Week 2021

Fosters are proud supporters of charity Headway and their support networks in Norfolk and Suffolk, as they seek to raise awareness of the effects of head injury during Action for Brain Injury Week 2021, the theme for which this year is A Life of Lockdown?

The aim of the campaign is to give a voice to survivors and carers to help them explain to family, friends and the wider community, the challenges they face as a result of brain injury. Challenges which have been particularly difficult during the lockdowns of the past 12 months.

Repeated lockdowns have left many people feeling isolated and sometimes forgotten but this, unfortunately, can be a lifelong feeling for those with brain injuries.

In addition to helping to raise awareness of such feelings of isolation, Fosters are also supporting and participating in Headway Norfolk and Waveney’s world record attempt on Friday 21st May at 4pm to have as many hats thrown in the air simultaneously as possible.

This will be the culmination of Headway’s annual Hats for Headway fundraising initiative, a competition in which Fosters won the charity’s group photo of 2020, where over 30 memnbers of staff and their families participated.

Fosters’ Personal Injury department has extensive experience of assisting those with acquired brain injury claims resulting in disability, memory loss, epilepsy, and other life changing symptoms. Head of Department, Stephen Green, and Senior Associate Solicitor, Barry Grogan, are both members of Headway’s approved panel of solicitors.

If you, or someone you know has been involved in an accident resulting in brain injury please contact us on 01603 620508 for a free no obligation chat.
