The aim of Pathway 1 is to provide the individual with the necessary knowledge, support and confidence to achieve their full potential.

Pathway 1 is intended for an individual who;

  • Requires a lot of support and guidance
  • Is looking for specific help
  • Needs one to one attention with minimal background noise
  • Has complex needs
  • Has trouble communicating and/or speech problems
  • Has specific goals they would like to work towards
  • Needs motivating or can’t put actions in place
  • Has poor insight
  • Requires rehabilitation from qualified professionals

For individuals placed on Pathway 1, a bespoke personal pathway is devised and additional one to one sessions are allocated to them. 

These sessions are person centred and can be used to;

  • Work through any challenges or struggles
  • Provide education about brain injury and brain recovery
  • Work towards specific goals and objectives
  • Organise, co-ordinate and oversee a multi-agency rehabilitation package
  • Help implement coping strategies to manage deficits

Throughout these one to one sessions,  the individual’s needs are reviewed, and if necessary an additional one to one sessions are provided. However, if our members of staff feel that the service user no longer needs one to one input, the next step is to integrate the individual into our small group sessions.

One to one sessions

During these sessions we develop a bespoke personal pathway for each person based on their individual needs, challenges and aspirations. The level of rehabilitation input required is carefully considered and if necessary, relevant professionals are sourced and funded to maximise recovery. These sessions also allow us to work through specific issues, suggest coping strategies and improve self-esteem and confidence.

Professional Support

We fund packages of specialist, professional support to help our brain injured friends reach their rehabilitation potential. We work with several accredited associates who offer services including aqua therapy, nutritional support, anger management, sports therapy, neuro-physiotherapy, counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy and speech therapy. Instructing professionals to facilitate rehabilitation can be expensive, but their input is particularly important in early recovery. We fund these services to those that are unable to afford them and who do not have access to funds from litigation.

Outreach Support

A small minority of those requiring our support, may be unable to access the P.A.U.L For Brain Recovery Centre. This could be for several reasons, such as; lack of mobility, lack of support network, recent discharge from acute services, severe anxiety or a medical condition. In some cases, the support team may visit the individual in their home. The aim of such a service is provide the individual with the necessary support and ascertain what measures need to be put in place to enable them to attend the Centre.
