Children and Families
Compass’ Children and Families Service aims to improve the quality of life of all children and young people under 18 years old with an acquired brain injury in Dumfries and Galloway, to enable them to reach their full potential, to work positively towards social inclusion and to involve and inform other professionals in that process.
The Child and Family Outreach Workers Karen Pickering and Kevin Honey provide help and support to families and carers of a child or young person with an acquired brain injury, within the home setting.
The service includes provision of information about acquired brain injury; help with education and re-training and advice about carers' groups and other agencies.
Outings are organised for families of brain injured children e.g. cinema, theatre and even short breaks away for the child (when funding is available), offering respite for the family.
If you would like to receive support or advice from us or are aware of anyone we could help in both the short and longer term, please Contact Us.
