We provide brain injury awareness and strategies to help the person on a daily basis fulfil their goals realistically. We do this by working with the person, their family and carers either within groups or on a one-to-one basis to overcome the short and long term effects of their injury.
This includes practical and emotional support following hospital discharge, advocacy, advice and support with vocational and employment opportunities, and helping people to cope with activities of daily living.
The service aims to provide a co-ordinated approach to meet the needs of people and carers affected by acquired brain injury. There is excellent open communication between all the services involved. We have direct involvement in planning processes and are therefore able to reflect the experiences of the people we support in a meaningful way. The service is jointly managed by Quarriers and Renfrewshire Social Work Department.
We accept telephone referrals from any source, for example:
