This bill is a breath of fresh air. Its relatable, needed and beneficial to any and everyone that may have had or is experiencing a brain injury. Today is its 2nd reading in Parliament.
What an acquired brain injury covers:
This Bill is calling for a comprehensive strategy to be implemented in order to meet the needs of adults and children with an acquired brain injury. This strategy, to be published no later than April 2023, aims to improve the provision of services by local authorities, NHS, Department for Education, Ministry of Defence, Prison Service, Department for Work and Pensions and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
The Bill, which covers England and Wales, will have its second reading in the Chamber on Friday, 3 December 2021.
A coalition of organisations are working to support the bill. We need to ensure that as many MPs as possible formally support the bill. This will give it the greatest chance of moving to the next stage and becoming legislation! (https://www.abibill.org.uk/)
Its not too late to help. Help by asking your local MP to support the bill. You can also ask your family and colleagues and to do the same. For more information go to; https://bills.parliament.uk/bills/2910/stages/15385 for more details and templates.
