23rd October 2019. Major event at the KCOM Stadium entitled: Raising the Barriers

25 Aug , 2019 Hull and East Riding News,News

Following on from previous successes, we are pleased to be able to offer places on this next event being held at the KCOM stadium on the 23rd of October 2019.

This one day conference for health and social care professionals will consider topics affecting those working with people with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and their families.

Full refreshments and lunch is provided. Our aim is to gather a cross section of interested professionals from across Hull and East Riding to look at the range of services that exist to help us all to deliver our work.

This event supports continued personal development and aims to share best practice, increasing all our awareness of what support is available, and where gaps exist, a commitment to work to resolve and close those gaps. We anticipate that by the end of the event, attendees will have gained new insight, have been able to share what service you provide, and refresh and expand on your knowledge of what service are available from others.

We seek to ensure that together we provide the right option at the right place at the right time, and at the right cost.

Key note speakers at the event:

  • Nicola Hughes: Chair, Headway Darlington & District, Consultant & Coach.
  • Jacquie Owen: RGN Client Support Consultant, Thompsons Solicitors NHS England
  • Helen Ford: Consultant Neurologist
  • Lucy Fallon, Service Development Manager, Ariya Neuro Care

Seven partner stands will also be at the event for networking, personal testimony, highly respected speakers, and interactive tabletop input.

A key part of the event will be a special edition of the Headway Humber news sheet which will contain outputs from the day, and share follow up action. This news sheet currently goes to over 700 contacts.

Most of the cost has been covered by sponsors, but we are also subsidising it from our own funds raised by our members. We therefore have asked for a nominal £10:00 registration fee, so that our members can continue with other priorities.

Thank you for your time, if you wish to attend the event please complete the attached *.pdf document and we hope to be able to see you and your staff on the 23rd of October.
