In 2016 Prama was privileged to begin delivering Brain Injury Care Services for people in Dorset with an acquired brain injury.

We are an experienced charity known for providing outstanding domiciliary care, with a commitment to help older people, vulnerable adults and now people with acquired brain injury, to live independently with the high-quality care and support they deserve.

Prama has built a reputation for home care on a solid foundation of Christian values, though is not an exclusively religious organisation; our clients and staff come from a range of faiths, or no faith. It is the core Christian values of love and care underpinning our services that has enabled us to develop the reputation we are proud to have.

The Brain Injury Service sits within the PramaCARE part of the Prama Foundation, benefitting from the recognised exemplary processes and procedures that have underpinned our domiciliary care for many years.

In the Brain Injury Service our work is as varied as our clients’ needs, and does not focus solely on providing care in the home.

Whilst we do support some of our clients with tasks and activities at home, we also help people access: 

  • education

  • training 

  • community based social and developmental activities

We also provide respite sits to enable family members and carers to have a break or engage themselves in social activities. Our work is built around supporting people with their rehabilitation to reduce isolation and enable people to retain a level of independence.

We have a small and dedicated team of fully trained staff, which is growing all the time. As we progress through 2018, we are working to reach out more widely across the country and provide more care and support to those who need it.  

We are growing our networks and meeting new clients all the time. Our aim is to become the Service provider of choice within the County for professionals, individuals, families and carers alike. We are developing a front facing approach, giving professionals, clients and family members security in the high quality of service that is provided.

If you would like to know more about our service, or if you like to speak with someone about what assistance we can offer, please give us a call on 01202 207320.

Our role in rehabilitation is to give our clients their very best chance at making improvements through engaging in different community based activities or approaches. We aim to enable our clients to retain as much independence as possible, including working on skills and aspects of their lives they may be struggling with. The support we provide for family members and carers is essential for their wellbeing, providing space to be themselves and retain their own identity and independence.”

Diane Evans - Brain Injury Service Manager

“My own recovery from a brain injury has been helped immensely as I have integrated back into work slowly through helping others who have suffered similar or worse injuries than I have.” Rehabilitation Support Worker

I received brain injury education in addition to other training, and achieved my NVQ 2 in Health and Social care. I enjoyed learning about brain injury and how it affects an individual and their families, and I have gained vital experience working with individuals who were living with brain injury.” Rehabilitation Support Worker

Prama Shops

Prama have a number of shops in the Dorset area which provide members of the public with a range of quality goods. We separate these into two distinct categories: PramaFair/fairtrade (not to be confused with Fairtrade!) and our Charity shops.

PramaFair

PRCTA1PramaFair is a shop located in Salisbury Street, Blandford which we’re happy to announce will be celebrating its first anniversary this October. It is primarily run by volunteers and is open between 09:30am and 4:30pm Monday to Saturday.

In addition, the shop also has an official eBay page for customers who would like to make a purchase online.

Here, you can find a variety of new items including jewellery, homeware and groceries and any purchases made at PramaFair benefit the Dorset community as the products we sell are all locally sourced.If you’re looking for Preloved goods, our charity shops have a lot to offer: there’s a large selection to choose from with clothes, household items and furniture to name but a few.

Pre Loved Goods

PLCTA2Prama has five charity shops located in West Moors, Parkstone, Tuckton, Kinson and Wimborne so you can be sure there is always a shop nearby.All of the goods for sale at our charity shops are kindly donated by members of the public; however, we still ensure that everything we sell is high quality.

To differentiate ourselves from other local and charity shops, PramaFair and the Prama Charity shops endeavour to stock unique and useful items that would not be found easily elsewhere, meaning there is likely to be something of interest to anyone who visits.

Furthermore, we have chosen the location for these shops so that they are easily accessible for customers anywhere in the Dorset area.
