Health Update
The Chief Executive of leading acquired brain injury rehabilitation charity, Brain Injury Matters, has raised concern at the potential number of new cases of children with a brain injury each year in Northern Ireland. An exact figure is still not fully known as many with mild to moderate injuries do not often lead to hospital admission and a large number being recorded under other conditions (for example, meningitis). Early identification of an acquired brain injury in children is vital as difficulties may not be evident initially, but gradually develop into problems as the brain matures.

Fiona McCabe, Chief Executive, Brain Injury Matters said: “The actual number of children with a brain injury is largely unknown which is highly concerning as the lack of service provision and recording of overall injuries is relatively poor. From evidence elsewhere in the UK, and what we know anecdotally, we suspect that there could be as many as 1,000 new cases of brain injury in children per year in Northern Ireland.”   

One way in which Brain Injury Matters is helping children with brain injury across Northern Ireland is through its Family First programme, in partnership with Belfast Health and Social Care Trust and funded by Big Lottery NI which provides support for families and children who have been fortunate to have had an early identification.
