On Friday 17th May 2013 the NCC Home Learning team joined together with the "hats 4 headway day" campaign to raise money for Action for Brain Injury (ABI) Week. NCC Home Learning delved deep into their clothing collections to don their craziest head gear. The event was organised by Headway, the brain injury association. The themes ran from sporting events to animal inspired hats, fun was had by all and money was raised for Headway.
This follows the opening of the Headway headquarters by Prince Harry in Nottingham last month. Princess Diana had always supported the charity and held its cause close to her heart. Brain injury was something Diana, Princess of Wales cared deeply about, enough in fact to become a royal patron of the charity.
Headway have launched a campaign to assist GP's to improve the quality of information and support they provide to people presenting brain injury symptoms. ABI can result in cognitive, physical, emotional or behavioural impairments and affects a huge amount of people and families around the UK.
NCC Home Learning hope to work towards educating the general public on the ways in which acquired brain injury can affect a family and the ways in which the injury can be accommodated in society. All of this and more is achieved through the Acquired Brain Injury Level 2 Course.
