We are here to help.


During these unprecedented times, our face to face services at the brain injury hub, allotment and out in the community are suspended. However, we have introduced a range of services to ensure all our clients can continue to be supported by the team. These services are delivered through:

Social Media Events

ZOOM and TEAMS meetings

Magazines, Newsletters and Activities

Art and Culture Resources

WhatsApp Groups

Telephone and Video Calls


Text Messages


Cards and Postcards

We have tried to consider all of our clients access preferences in this response, and are working with the Derby City Covid 19 Response Team to ensure that all our clients and their loved ones have the support they need. As more of the UK community recieve the vaccine and the pandemic reduces, we will cautiously be inviting members back, in small groups to our Brain Injury Hub and Allotment.
