A South Yorkshire brain injury specialist is urging local schools to get involved in a new campaign for Brain Injury Week.

Claire Hall is promoting the #ConcussionAware initiative which aims to help teachers understand the complexities of a concussion, the symptoms and possible dangers.

Claire is hoping local schools will get involved by downloading a concussion factsheet poster for their classroom which has been created by The Children’s Trust, the charity she works for.

Claire, who is based at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and helps children in their recovery following a brain injury, said: “Concussions in children are usually from a fall or bump to the head in the playground or can be caused during sport. The right support is essential.”
