Jo Swinson MP and attendees at the Kirkintilloch Brain Injury Cafe
The new Kirkintilloch Acquired Brain Injury Cafe has received a visit from Jo Swinson MP.
Jo called in for a chat at the support group, which encourages people who have suffered from brain injuries from trauma or illness to get together and talk about their experiences. Run by charities Ceartus and Headway, it is hoped that by sharing individual stories in an informal and welcoming setting, the group will prevent brain injury sufferers feeling isolated.
Taking place on the 1st Thursday of every month at Kirkintilloch Baptist Church Cafe, the group has already attracted around 15 members.
Commenting, Jo Swinson said:
“It was great to meet attendees at the new Acquired Brain Injury Cafe for a chat and a cup of tea. By reaching out to brain injury sufferers in East Dunbartonshire, the group is providing an invaluable service and a fantastic support network. Many of the people I chatted to were grateful to be able to share their stories and there was a real sense of positivity.
“If you’re interested in the group, or know someone who may be, get in touch with Ceartas on 0141 775 0433 or Headway Glasgow on 0141 332 8878.”
