As we won’t be able to meet in-person this year, we wanted to give you the opportunity to inspire our Keynote Speaker, Lemn Sissay OBE, with your own anonymised accounts of the experience of changing family identity after brain injury.

Lemn Sissay is a poet, playwright, artist performer and broadcaster. He has read on stage throughout the world: from The Library of Congress in The United States to The University of Addis Ababa, from Singapore to Sri Lanka, Bangalore to Dubai, from Bali to Greenland AND Wigan library – and we want you to help inspire his talk for the Ahead Together Conference!

As a professional in brain injury, you may have witnessed the challenges that families face with identity first-hand. Whether you want to learn more about the impact of brain injury on family identity, or share insights into how best to work with the issue, you are certain to have something inspiring for our eminent Keynote Speaker.

So, please use the form below to share your experience in a professional capacity. Our Conference team will select the most inspiring account from your submissions to help inspire Lemn’s Keynote speech on the day.

Please do not include any personal data (for example, real names of any patients or their family members) in your account of family identity after brain injury, and take care to ensure no individual’s identity can be determined from the account you provide.

The opportunity to submit your account of family identity after brain injury will be open until 23 August 2021.
