HRH Prince Henry of Wales launched a new initiative from UK-wide brain injury charity Headway at our Ipswich hub on July 20.
The charity’s Brain Injury Identity Card will help the police identify brain injury survivors and ensure they are given appropriate support when they come into contact with the criminal justice system.
The card also has the additional benefit of breaking down social exclusion, with card holders having renewed confidence in the knowledge that they can easily explain their support needs should they require assistance in everyday situations.
Peter McCabe, Chief Executive of Headway, said: “We are delighted that Prince Harry has generously agreed to support this important project.”
