Government announces plans for ABI strategy

ABIL congratulates Chris Bryant MP and UKABIF on the announcement from the government that it will implement a cross departmental strategy for Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). The development of the strategy will be overseen by a Programme Board, co-chaired by Gillian Keegan, Minister of State for Care and Mental Health, and Chris Bryant. This is a major step in the right direction and a result that is testament to the tireless work that has gone into this by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Acquired Brain Injury, chaired by Chris Bryant and UKABIF, who have been hugely involved from the start and worked closely with Chris. It has been great to see support for the campaign grow and huge thanks to everyone who has become involved and supported in any way they can. ABIL is looking forward to how things progress in 2022. https://ukabif.org.uk/news/588903/
