Last chance to enter UKABIF Awards



Time is running out to enter the UKABIF Awards 2023, and to secure a place at its annual conference at a discounted rate. 

The Awards are open until tomorrow, and entries can be made in three categories to acknowledge excellence in neuro-rehab:

  • The Mike Barnes Award for Innovation, which will recognise an innovative project/concept in
    the management of ABI that has originality, viability, feasibility and desirability. The winner will receive support from NIHR to advance their project 
  • The Stephen McAleese Award for Inspiration, which recognises an individual for their inspirational work in the field of ABI
  • The UKABIF Poster Prize, which encourages entries from those involved in research projects which focus on brain injury. The winner receives £100, free UKABIF membership for a year and free admission to the 2024 conference. 

Entries must be made by the end of tomorrow, and can be submitted here.

The winners will be revealed at the UKABIF Time for Change Summit, which is a must-attend event in the calendar for neuro-rehab professionals nationally.

Taking place on Monday, November 6, at The Lowry in Manchester, the day again includes an agenda full of updates and insight into the latest developments in the field of ABI. 

This year’s event includes presentations from Sir Chris Bryant on the ABI Strategy and raising awareness in Parliament; an update on the TBI-REPORTER project from Professor David Menon; and  insight into key issues including women and brain injury, suicide, schools and cannabis. 

The early bird rate to sign up ends tomorrow, which gives a ten per cent discount to both members and non members. 

Delegates can sign up here. 

Places are still available for the UKABIF Fundraising Dinner, held on Sunday, November 5, the night before the Summit and in the same location. Tables of ten are £1,000, or single seats are priced at £125.
