Teen’s Link Programme
What is the Teen's Link Progamme?
Linking teenagers (aged 13-18) with experience of acquired brain injury to their local community, peer interactions, age appropriate activities and social opportunities.
It provides mentorship through interactions with likeminded and individually selected volunteers in their community.
The programme aims to:
- Increase confidence in peer interactions
- Offer links to local youth activities
- Promote social networking
- Reduce social isolation
Who can apply?
We accept referrals from health and social care professionals, self-referrals, family members and carers. Referrals must be for young people aged 13-18 who have an acquired brain injury. We are unable to offer places to individuals with a progressive illness or congenital brain injury. Applicants must also be independent in personal care or be able to bring someone along to support them with their personal care.
