Day One is here to provide practical and emotional support to help you manage your circumstances and make the best possible recovery following a major physical trauma.
From emergency funding to long-term peer support, in the Major Trauma Centres where we work, we can be your side throughout your recovery journey. Take a look to see how we can support you.
Your traumatic injury may have been preventable and there may be a legal case to pursue against whoever is liable (to blame) for the accident or event and to recover compensation for your pain and suffering.
Our Emergency Fund is available to families to help cover costs incurred during their relative’s stay in hospital, including travel and accommodation costs, parking and other unforeseen expenses such as clothes, food and toiletries.
Benefits and welfare advice
You may be worried about the financial impact of your injury, particularly if you are unable to work, either temporarily or longer term. We offer benefits and welfare advice, through our partner, Citizens Advice.
When a major traumatic accident or event occurs, it not only affects your life but has implications for the people you live with and who love you. We can offer support.
