Action for Brain Injury Week: 18-22 May 2015
This year's Action for Brain Injury Week is here so look out for news and events. This is our opportunity to raise awareness of brain injury so if you're doing something to help those affected let us know so we can publicise it. Don't forget to use #ABIWeek if you're tweeting!
This year will also see the return of Hats for Headway Day on 22 May 2015.

Read more about this challenge in a new article by Mark Holloway and Rachel Fyson in the British Journal of Social Work (access via the link on Head First's website).
