November Wimbledon Group Meeting

It was great to have such a large turnout at November’s Wimbledon
meeting. We had a group discussion about fatigue; potential triggers,
how to recognise it, factors affecting fatigue and how it can be
managed. We spoke about practical strategies that can be used in our
daily routines and people shared their experiences which were extremely
valuable. Attendees found it reassuring to know that others experience
similar issues following a brain injury and that fatigue can be managed.

See you all in December for a Christmas themed arts and crafts session
with mince pies!
