1 in 3 people will have Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) at some point in their life.
Reports say* that more than 135 million worldwide are living with brain injury. This is an underestimate of the scale of the problem due to the lack of focus on brain injury. We believe neurorehabilitation equality must be achieved. SameYou stands up for what’s right for brain injury survivors and their families. By donating you can be part of the change.
How will your donation help?
Your donation will help us reach our goals to end brain injury and stroke recovery inequality.
Since our launch in 2019, we have already:
Funded biopsychosocial research with Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Boston USA
Partnered with the RCN Foundation UK and Edinburgh University Scotland to develop a Masters module training programme to help nurses develop the missing integrated brain body and mind specialist skills urgently needed in neurological rehabilitation
Funded and developed the first of it’s kind telerehabilitation programme N-ROL with University College London (UCL) Queen Square, London, England
Improved rehabilitation is essential to help people recover from the impact of their injuries.
These are complex and far reaching and include cognitive changes, physical and sensory problems, fatigue, pain and changes in how they perceive themselves and the world. Please give now to enable us to keep our critical work going. Your donation will be used where it’s needed most - ensuring that your gift is as impactful as possible.
“Surviving a stroke or brain injury and being discharged from the hospital is just half the battle, especially when you expect the majority of your life to still be ahead of you. As a young survivor, having accessibility to long term rehab resources and a welcoming community helps you feel less isolated, gives you a sense of belonging and makes you feel like you’re not fighting the daily battles alone. That’s what SameYou did for me.”
“As a severe traumatic brain injury survivor, I forever live with this “invisible” injury that affects my everyday life. I am just one of millions of people walking among the world with their lingering deficits - just trying to get fragments of our old selves back. I have overcome many roadblocks during my recovery due to the support I received, but a brain injury is a lifelong recovery, and there is always progress if you find the right therapy. This is why stressing the need/availability of rehab for brain injuries by SameYou is of utmost importance to the world.”
“Since my accident, I have had to learn how to walk, how to shower, how to dress, how to eat, basically everything. I am still not fully recovered and have had to fight for rehabilitation. SameYou’s work championing brain injury and stroke survivors, plus carers is so important. This has given me hope for the future.”
