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 Prama Care 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 2019, we are working to reach out more widely across the county 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 reablement 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.” Reablement 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.” Reablement Support Worker

Skinner Street Pop In Group Celebrate 30 Years

30 years of Fun and Laughter!


Prama’s Pop-In Group at Skinner Street United Reformed Church celebrated its 30th anniversary on 11 June with an afternoon party for its members, and volunteers, some of whom have been involved with the group for the whole of its existence. A huge buffet spread was laid on and the Land Girls performed songs from earlier decades, to the delight of all who attended.
Every Tuesday from 2 to 4 pm volunteers from PramaLife, part of the Prama Foundation, offer a warm welcome to any older people who would like to meet up and make friends, socialise over a cuppa, or take part in activities such as bingo, skittles or crafts.
Jean, a member who has attended the group for 5 years, said “I started coming here after I lost my husband and I’ve made lots of friends – it’s really picked me up. I’ve met up with people I went to school with!” Gladys, 95, used to be the caretaker of the hall, watching it being prepared for the Prama group with much care and thought, and has now been a member for 10 years herself. “They go one step further to make sure it’s a good day, a good show every week”.
The volunteers, Linda, Diane, Rona and Pat each received a bouquet of flowers from Prama to thank them for their time and service over the years. Bridget Barrett, the Volunteer Manager for PramaLife Poole, said, “We are delighted to be able to celebrate some wonderful memories with our lovely clients and volunteers; we have had 30 years of fun, friendship and laughter and we are especially grateful to our committed volunteers who make such a difference to our members.”
To find out more about Skinner Street Pop-In and any of Prama’s other Pop-In clubs, Memory Lane groups, Carers’ Support Groups, Coffee Mornings and Hobby Groups, please call Bridget Barrett on 01202 207310 or 07867 354578.
