Ahead Together Conference 2021: Supporting family identity after brain injury


9th September 2021 - 9.00 -16:30


The 2019 Ahead Together conference was a fantastic, inspirational and emotional day full of valuable information for those in the field of brain injury neurorehabilitation. So following the success of this we have launched Ahead Together 2021, which will explore how brain injury impacts on people’s family identity.

If you are passionate about working with – or want to learn more about the experiences of the families of brain injury survivors – then this is the conference for you. Royds Withy King Solicitors are proud to announce their second national Brain Injury Conference – again focusing on supporting the family and professional relationship in the context of acquired brain injury.

Through linking the latest clinical and research evidence base and the personal accounts of family members, this conference promises to be an illuminating and informative day, offering a unique perspective on the needs of families and how professionals and families can work more effectively together towards improved outcomes.


Join us this time to hear clinical, legal, research and deeply personal perspectives on the impact of brain injury on family identity.
