Providing support

When someone you know has sustained a traumatic brain injury, it can be a distressing time for everyone, and it can be difficult to know how to help. Headway shares guidance on some things you can do.

Carer support and benefits

You might not think of yourself as a carer but you probably are if you’re looking after someone regularly, including your spouse or a family member, because they’re ill or disabled. As a carer, you may be entitled to one or more state benefits to help you with the costs. Find out more about support and benefits for carers on the NHS website and carer’s allowance on GOV.UK
