EABIF is operating in a context where a number of government policies recommend better and joined-up services for people who have had a brain injury, their relatives and carers – in particular the National Framework for Long-term (Neurological) Conditions (2005) and the White Paper ‘Our health, our care, our say’ (2006).
We feel very strongly that EABIF must have representation from all stakeholders with an interest and commitment to ensuring that those across Essex who have an acquired brain injury, their relatives and carers, are heard and seen and are given access to appropriate rehabilitation, care, support and information. We want EABIF to provide an effective means for all involved to network and share information and ideas.
We are therefore encouraging, and actively seeking, membership and involvement from colleagues in health, social services, housing, employment services etc., and in the private and voluntary sectors, working in this field at all stages of the care pathway, together with brain injury survivors, their families and carers.
