Share your experiences of caring for someone with brain injury

on .

Healthwatch Thurrock is hosting an event for friends and families of people that have suffered a brain injury.

If you have known someone who has suffered a brain injury as a result of a stroke, hypoxic brain injury, or some other accident, then Healthwatch Thurrock wants to hear from you.

The event is an opportunity to share your views with local organisations over a cup of tea and cakes. You can share your experience of services, your opinion on support that was on offer, and your ideas on what was missing that you believe would have made a real difference.

There will also be an opportunity to speak to Headway Essex, The Stroke Association and other local organisations about support available to you.

Healthwatch Thurrock will be holding the free afternoon tea event at the Beehive, West Street, Grays, RM17 6XP on Friday, 22 May 2015 from 1pm – 4pm.

To book a place, or to discuss any issues relating to transportation, you can call the Healthwatch Thurrock office on 01375 389883.

Why not come along in a hat and help Headway Essex raise awareness of the effects of brain injury on the organisation's Hats 4 Headway Day
