Employment and neurological conditions
The impact of being diagnosed with a neurological condition can be devastating, and often means so much more than losing your health. You may also have lost your independence or job too, and found you are no longer able to work as you previously did.
The Brain Charity can help you improve your current employment situation and help you make the necessary changes to maintain your employment.
Do you need help with your existing employment?
If you are in work and have had a brain injury or sudden neurological diagnosis, The Brain Charity can provide advice on the following:
- The reasonable adjustments your employer should make to accommodate your new needs.
- Information on your legal rights and options around changing your role, travel to the workplace or early retirement.
- Benefits advice and advocacy for people balancing employment with a caring role.
- Guidance around health expectations in the workplace, such as pain management, fatigue issues and comfortable working environments.
