WHAT PEOPLE SAY

We feel it is important to support those making a positive impact within our community and relationships such as the one we have with PAUL For Brain Recovery are mutually beneficial.  Many people we speak to mention our support of PAUL For Brain Recovery, and how we have helped the charity get where it is today. They are aware of the positive impact the charity is having on so many lives, which naturally reflects well on us.
Hudgell Solicitors

We believe that supporting a charity should be something every business does, however big or small it is. As well as giving back and helping do good, it also brings lots of business benefits. For example, raising the businesses’ profile, developing corporate relationships, enhancing staff team building and also strengthening the businesses’ reputation.

Bambu Community has loved supporting Paul For Brain so much that we will continue to do so for another 12 months!

Before accessing the PAUL For Brain Recovery Centre we were lost and not sure about our future. Life was not the same after Simon’s injury but with the love and guidance we get from PAUL For Brain Recovery, we will get through this. The support we have had and still have is second to non, and we are so grateful to be supported by such a brilliant team.

The Cobus Communications team have supported PAUL for Brain Recovery for the past two years, as part of our nominated charity foundation, and we are proud to have helped it grow from modest beginnings to what it has become today. We strongly believe that it’s every businesses responsibility to give something back to the local community and it’s encouraging that the whole Cobus team recognise this and get actively involved. As well as the appreciation from the charity it’s also very rewarding for the business in that it helps to promote real team spirit and togetherness outside the regular business activities, it also helps promote a positive internal and external image and demonstrates a real passion within its staffing and operations. The charity has also introduced Cobus to several new contacts that have enabled some positive and reciprocal business networking opportunities.

PAUL For Brain Recovery helped Sheralee and myself a great deal when we didn’t have any idea on the issues we faced. Paul and the team have made us feel so at ease with all our problems. We really appreciate all the work they have done for us both. The centre helped us feel part of a family that joins together to help each other. Keep up the good work and remember - Positivity, Awareness, Understanding and Love!
Simon & Sheralee
Since coming to the PAUL For Brain Recovery Centre I have gained more confidence and I am eating healthier. At the centre I am meeting other people going through brain recovery and hearing how they are coping with life. This has helped me as I wasn’t coping and was unable to accept my life after brain injury.
Jane
Coming to the centre has helped me on the social aspects of brain injury. The staff at the centre are great - they are supportive and understanding.
Matt
PAUL For Brain Recovery has helped phenomenally in getting my life back on track. I find I receive a great deal of help, support and love at the centre. They have assisted me with my education, career and on benefits issues.
Giorgio
Without the Paul For Brain Recovery Centre my struggle to adapt to life after my accident would have been immense. Many thanks to you all!
Simon
In the NHS we put our focus into ensuring that people who have a brain or head injury get the best medical treatment, but we need to recognise that people often need much longer term support and rehabilitation to help them pick up their lives again after such a traumatic experience. That’s why someone like Paul with his personal experience, knowledge and skills has been an inspiration to so many people. His remarkable journey, and his desire to help others in the same position, has led to the launch of the PAUL for Brain Recovery Centre, and we wish him and his team every success.

Supporting PAUL For Brain Recovery has always been close to our hearts, not only on a personal level but as a business too.  We have seen PAUL For Brain Recovery develop through the years and are proud to have supported a service that is much needed throughout the UK.

We stock the PAUL For Brain Recovery merchandise in our store and we have seen an increase in footfall as a result of this.

Before coming to the PAUL For Brain Recovery Centre I was depressed, stagnating and lonely. Since coming here I have an improved attitude to life. I have a much healthier lifestyle as I am now walking and cycling. The centre is a caring, warm and friendly place with many people going through similar experiences to me. The staff here are kind and understanding and provide an excellent service.

We selected PAUL for Brain Recovery as our charity of the year for a number of reasons. Firstly, we understand how valuable their work is in the community and we have seen firsthand the positive impact they have on the lives of many people, as well as the love and compassion that they show in their work. It is an amazing charity and it’s been an absolute pleasure to work alongside them.

We are delighted to support PAUL For Brain Recovery. The support the organisation provides for sufferers of brain injuries is invaluable and not easily accessible anywhere else locally. The organisation also provides a wealth of support for the families of brain injury patients at a time when most families do not know which way to turn or how to cope. As a local business who have had a real need for these support services we are proud to support the great work that PAUL For Brain Recovery do in our local community.

I have known Paul since my appointment as Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine with the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. His passion and commitment to improving the care of patients with acquired brain injury is unparalleled. His positive and can do attitude is a breath of fresh air in patient advocacy. He constantly seeks to improve upon existing services by his active involvement as well as supporting existing NHS services. He has worked tirelessly to set up a support centre for patients with acquired brain injury to fill an existing gap in service provision in the local area. He acts as a role model to many of our patients and gives hope to a lot of patients who are understandably apprehensive about what the future holds following their brain injury.

Before coming to the PAUL For Brain Recovery Centre I had lost hope and lost a lot of confidence within myself. My world seemed to end the day I had my stroke. I then came across PAUL For Brain Recovery and my life changed for the better. Within weeks of accessing the Centre my life improved. Along the way I was able to start working again and even started to exercise. My confidence has improved and I have made new friends, friends for life. Without the support of the PAUL For Brain Recovery Centre I dread to think where I would be now. So, in short the Centre is an amazing, supporting and loving place, which has helped my recovery a great deal.

Team PAUL4Brain is sooooo proud! Well done Paul ❤️️Job done 👍 Buzzing to get through it!

It was tough out there but I dug deep for PAUL For Brain and I had some extra motivation, as this was my 18th marathon I dedicated it to my son Reece as he was born on that date and is a massive inspiration ❤️

Thanks for all your support & sponsors everyone! Time for beers 🍺
