P.A.U.L. for Brain Recovery
Bringing the charity's vision and values to life visually
In 2012, Paul Spence (Founder and CEO of P.A.U.L For Brain Recovery) was the victim of an unprovoked attack and suffered a brain haemorrhage. After discharge from a high dependency unit, Paul and his family faced a long and challenging recovery journey. They struggled with the devastating consequences of his brain injury alone, as they soon realised there was a lack of support available in the community.
Despite dealing with the long-lasting effects of his brain injury, Paul was determined to make the best possible recovery. Aiming to be the “best version of the new him”, Paul began practicing good coping strategies and chose to follow a healthy lifestyle which allowed him to manage his difficulties.
Paul felt he wanted to share his experience and help support others on his journey so he set up the P.A.U.L For Brain Recovery charity. He felt there needed to be a next step after leaving hospital, somewhere to go, a lifeline, a place to obtain Positivity, Awareness, Understanding and Love. In 2016, the P.A.U.L For Brain Recovery centre opened as an access point in the community to help ensure people can get the support and guidance they need after suffering a brain injury.
Having worked with the charity in the past to create visual summaries of workshops with people who have lived experiences of brain injury, we were hired again in 2023 to create a one-page summary of the charity's vision and values.
