Get Involved

The charity provides a day resource service for adults with an acquired brain injury in the Wakefield and surrounding areas. We believe in the right of everyone to an acceptable quality of life and that disability should not be a barrier to obtaining the skills, knowledge and understanding required to achieve a better quality of life. We would like to offer the best available services to our members.
