Head Injury Information Day returns to Glasgow in May
Head Injury Information Day – a major annual event bringing together people living with brain injuries, their families, friends and carers alongside charities and support groups working in the local area - is again coming to Glasgow next month.
West Central Scotland Head Injury Information Day 2017
West Central Scotland Head Injury Information Day (HIID) will be held in the city’s DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel on Cambridge Street on Wednesday 10th May 2017, running from 9.30am to 3.30pm. Digby Brown are once again proud supporters of this important event.
Over thirty exhibitors from Lanarkshire and West Central Scotland
Over thirty organisations will be exhibiting at this event, providing free information on the local support they can offer on a range of medical, legal and welfare issues to individuals and families affected by acquired brain injury.
Head Injury Information Day will also feature presentations on a range of topics from professionals working in the field, including treatment and rehabilitation after a brain injury, and information on guardianship and powers of attorney.
This is the seventh year the event has been held, with thousands of people from across the West of Scotland attending and benefiting from the day.
"I would really encourage individuals and families living with a brain injury to come along.”
Kathleen McMonagle, Digby Brown Solicitors’ Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, an organiser of Digby Brown's Head Injury Information Days, is encouraging anyone affected by a brain injury or working in this field to attend. Kathleen said:
“Brain injuries are sometimes called a ‘hidden disability’ but for people affected by an acquired brain injury and their families, the reality is far from hidden. No-one has to deal with a brain injury alone, there is a huge amount of local support available from organisations throughout West Central Scotland.
“Head Injury Information Day has helped hundreds, if not thousands of people find help, support and advice and this year’s event is looking like it will be our biggest one yet.
“The day is completely free for anyone to attend and I would really encourage individuals and families living with a brain injury to come along.”
