Regional Groups

It is very important for our members, to have information about local services and the support of colleagues so UKABIF has established a network of regional groups around the UK. The groups are self-governing, thanks to the hard work of small groups of individuals in each area who manage meetings and organise networking and educational events. Click on the links to find out how to join your local group and to see events which are taking place in your area.

The South West group covers a very wide area extending from Gloucestershire to Cornwall including Wiltshire and Dorset. There are two groups in this area – one covers Bristol and Bath and is Chaired by Stuart Brazington of Royds Withy King, the other covers Devon and Cornwall and is Chaired by Jackie Burt of Westcountry Case Management who is also Chair of the Brain Injury Social Work Group.
