What we do
UKABIF raises awareness of acquired brain injury in parliament and amongst policy makers. Our primary objective is to ensure that people with acquired brain injury have early access to good quality local, specialist neurorehabilitation and follow up services in the community if they are needed.
We provide information and links to other organisations so that people with brain injury, their carers and professionals have access to all the details they need.
UKABIF has a network of regional groups and an active online community. This means that people who work in the field of ABI are supported on a local and national basis and have access to contacts, care provision and educational resources.
UKABIF organises an accredited national conference each year. Periodically we also offer specialist seminars. These events aim to educate attendees from a variety of professional backgrounds.
