A helping hand


When Rob Smith was just 23, he suffered a bleed on the brain caused by a brain tumour. He was left with poor balance and co-ordination as well as slurred speech.

Rob, like thousands of other people living with the long-term effects of acquired brain injury, often struggles to complete simple daily tasks that most of us take for granted.

Whether a result of problems with memory or information processing, or difficulties with slurred speech or word finding, the often hidden and fluctuating effects of brain injury can make it hard for people to get the help, support and understanding they need.

A helping hand is part of a series of short films from Headway that asks people to try to see what’s hidden and offer support, not judgement, with the call-to-action: Be aware and show you care.
