A not-for-profit dedicated to improving the brain injury care path for all.


No one should have to struggle alone

For the millions of people around the world affected by different types of Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), either directly, as a ‘survivor,’ or indirectly, as a family member, friend or carer, there are often gaps in health service provision or information. Because of this, people are left to grapple with situations that they really shouldn’t have to. GBIA CIC is dedicated to improve the brain injury care path for all.

Bridging the Gaps

For those living with the outcomes of trauma to the brain, the path towards recovery is bewildering and often daunting. It is especially so for those who are without the help of specialist services. For many people, there is frequently no path ahead; there is no structure. People are left battling from one moment to the next, including many of those who have been discharged from rehabilitation who often find that the support stops when therapy stops.

Everyone who is struggling or in pain deserves to have hope.
