Borders Brain Injury Service
For over a decade, Borders Brain Injury Service (BBIS) has been providing personalised support to individuals living with brain injuries.
Funded by Scottish Borders Council, BBIS helps adults who have sustained brain injuries to live independently and to reintegrate into their communities.
The programme also provides support to family members and carers of adults and children with brain injuries.
The support we provide at BBIS is led by our participants; they are involved in all aspects of their recovery. We aim to support BBIS participants in the following ways:
Provide an in-depth needs assessment
Help set actions and goals in line with desired outcomes
Tips on how to look after and improve health and wellbeing
Support to help live as independently as possible
Assistance on how to maintain and improve quality of life
Access to social groups in the local community
To access this service you should be a resident of the Scottish Borders and aged between 16-65. BBIS works with individuals with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
