This covers carers of older people, of those who have a physical or mental disability, of those with a sensory impairment or of those with mental health problems. Membership of the group includes representatives from the Health and Social Care Trusts, DHSSPS, Health and Social Care Board, local Commissioning Groups, the voluntary sector and the Public Health Agency. There are also five carer members. Commenting on his appointment, Frank Dolaghan said, “I consider this to be a recognition of the innovative work of the Brain Injury Foundation to provide support to carers and family members as well as brain injury survivors.
