Due to the increase in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) cases presenting to services arising, primarily, from the national increase in Road Traffic Accidents (RTAs) and the increased survival rate of TBI and Stroke (CVA) cases a heightened focus on the adequacy of service provision to people with an acquired brain injury (ABI) has arisen.

The following sub-groups of people with ABI have been identified:
• Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
• Non-Traumatic Brain Injury (NTBI), including; Stroke (CVA), Anoxia and Hypoxia, Haemorrhage, Tumour and Infection
• Alcohol Related Brain Injury (ARBI)
• Substance Related Brain Injury (SRBI)

Study objective:
In order to inform effective planning and development of future service provision a social scientific assessment of the extent of need among people with ABI in the region required to be undertaken.
