A FREE seminar is set to provide invaluable advice for those with acquired brain injuries (ABI).

The event, organised by Headway and Ceartas Advocacy, was fully booked last year - so get in touch now if you want to guarantee a seat.

It will take place at Ceartas’ Kirkintilloch headquarters, in Donaldson Crescent, from 2-4pm on Wednesday, May 15.

The key speaker will be Clinical Psychologist Dr Pamela Brown, from the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust.

She will be speaking about ‘Memory Changes and Changes in Identity After Brain Injury’ and will include input from people who have been affected by the condition.

The talk will be of interest to anybody who has an ABI - whether acquired as a result of a tumour, and accident or an illness - or carers, members of the public, and those working in health, social work and voluntary sector organisations.

There will be an opportunity to look round information stands from organisations which support people with brain injury, while refreshments will be served at the end - giving you the opportunity to speak to those involved.
