Brain Injury ID Cards 


 

The launch of Brain Injury Identity Cards has proven a great success, not only boosting the confidence of a brain injury survivor in the community, but also raising awareness with the general public.

 

The cards have also helped raise awareness to shop staff and police. No longer do brain injury survivors have to feel self-conscious at the supermarket checkout because the process is taking them longer than other shoppers. No longer do they have to worry about appearing drunk to shop staff or police if speech is slurred or movements are difficult to control. These cards, supported by none other than HRH Prince Harry, really do provide a significant difference when out and about.

 

 

The cards can be personalised with the brain injury specific to the survivor, and related conditions. This could be anything from epilepsy, fatigue or difficult speech, through to emotional issues such as anxiety or frustration. Members of the public, police, shop staff, etc, are then aware that certain processes may take that person a little longer and need to allow a little extra time, patience and understanding. 

 

 

One of the best things about these cards? They're completely free of charge, and available to any brain injury survivor aged 18 or over.
