The Children’s Trust, Tadworth is hosting a special one-day event especially for 14 to 19 year olds who have a brain injury because of an accident or illness, giving them the opportunity to meet other young people and chat about what life is like.
Called ‘Where’s your head at?’ the event on Sunday 28th April 2013 at the Holiday Inn at Chessington World of Adventures Resort will provide young people and their families the opportunity to meet others in similar situations to them, and hear from inspirational figures and young people about their views on brain injury.
This event is aimed at young people who attend some classes in a mainstream school or college and access the National Curriculum. Each young person must also have one adult who can stay with them as their supporter throughout the day.
Young people who attended a pilot event run by The Children’s Trust said: “I learnt that it is not just me that has a brain injury.”
Parents who attended also commented: “I learnt that we experience the same difficulties as other families – we are not alone.” “It was interesting to hear other people’s views on brain injury.”
There is an administration charge of £15 per young person (entry for their accompanying adult is free). Refreshments, lunch and entry to the theme park are provided for both of them.
