Spain | Association
ADACEN, based in Navarre and comprising families and victims of brain injury, aims to improve the quality of life of those people affected by brain injury as well as their families.Federated on a national level, it forms part of the FEDACE (Spanish Federation of Brain Injury) and is part of the European Brain Injury Confederation (BIF).
In the light of the serious injuries caused by traffic accidents, we aim to raise awareness and encourage civic and responsible behaviour within society, as well as to inform society as to the causes and consequences of brain injury in order to increase understanding. For this reason, we shall be undertaking the following actions over the next three years:
Some 80 talks will be given by an ADACEN psychologist at 30 schools to approximately 1,600 secondary school and college students between the ages of 12 and 18 years. The talks will be dynamic and will encourage participation. They will include audiovisual material, and a person suffering from brain injury as a result of a traffic accident will also be present to explain his or her personal experience.
Our website, visited by 2,672 people annually (an average of 222 visits per month) will include information about the European Road Safety Charter.
