On Friday 18 January 2019, Member of Parliament for North Oxfordshire, Victoria Prentis, visited the Child Brain Injury Trust (CBIT) to discuss support available for young people affected by acquired brain injury (ABI).
The Bicester-based charity provides emotional and practical support for children with ABI and their families, aiming to improve outcomes and quality of life. During the visit, members of staff had the opportunity to speak to Victoria about the long-term goals of the charity, including the ways to support them in Parliament.
Speaking after the visit, Victoria said: “I really enjoyed meeting the team at the Child Brain Injury Trust to learn more about the charity’s work. It was good to focus on support for affected families and those in education, and ways we can work together to improve outcomes for young people with a brain injury.”
Louise Wilkinson, Head of Information and Learning at the Child Brain Injury Trust also said: “We are delighted that Victoria enjoyed her visit to us and that she is sympathetic to the educational and rehabilitation needs of young people and their families who are affected by acquired brain injury. We are looking forward to working with her to help us achieve our goals.”
