Who Are You Now?


 


Life stories of


brain injury survivors

Every year in London there are more than 40,000 hospital admissions for brain injury. Most are caused by road traffic accidents, assaults and falls. 14,000 are for stroke.

This site tells the stories of survivors in their own words: who they were, what happened to them and who they are now.
