Increasing long-term participation in sports based activities in children and young people with acquired brain injury.
Participation in sports can play a key role in a child’s quality of life, development and learning (Willis, 2018). Children and young people (CYP) with acquired brain injury (ABI) face significant barriers in accessing sporting and leisure activities. This reduces the likelihood of participation in regular sporting and leisure activities (Anaby,2018), both in the recovery period and the later stages (Willis, 2018).
This is a quality improvement project that explores the implementation of a sports based group in a neurorehabilitation centre for CYP with ABI.
