UKABIF are delighted that a second backbench debate on acquired brain injury will take place in parliament on Thursday 9th May. The debate will start at around 11.30 am and will give MPs the chance to speak on behalf of their constituents who have suffered from an acquired brain injury or work in this area.
MPs Chris Bryant and John Hayes will lead the speeches and will refer to the APPG for Acquired Brain Injury’s Report and Recommendations. They will state support for the conclusions of the report and urge the government to coordinate responses across the departments so that those who have sustained brain injuries are guaranteed full neuro-rehabilitation as needed.

Brain Injury survivors and those working in this field have been contacting their MPs to request they attend and speak on their behalf at the debate.
