Developing a nurse-led intervention to support young adults impacted by brain injury

We received an AWARD! The Advancing Inclusion Award – The YARNS Transitions Team, School of Health in Social Science


In this post, Elaine Haycock-Stuart, Project Manager and Co Investigator, shares her reflections on the Team’s recent success with the People of CAHSS Award.



The Advancing Inclusion Award – The YARNS Transitions Team, School of Health in Social Science


We are delighted to have been awarded recognition for inclusivity at the People of CAHSS Awards 2024! We were identified from 1830 submissions across a number of categories for the Advancing Inclusion Award.  The award scheme which provides a brilliant opportunity to let people know what a difference the Team makes within the University.



We donned our glad rags for an afternoon of celebration in the wonderful McEwan Hall. There was an atmosphere of appreciation for the work of many colleagues. The highlight was hearing about other people’s contributions to making the University such a wonderful place to work.


I have to say it was very moving to see the creative and thoughtful design and production process by the University of Edinburgh students in the Art school who created the wonderful sustainable awards and tokens that were distributed to the winners.


For the team it was an opportunity to have the work of the Team recognised as they aim to improve outcomes for young adults after an Acquired Brain Injury.  The spirit of the team shone through as we work together with a purpose to make a positive difference to other people’s health.

It is lovely to feel valued in this world of business and to have an opportunity as a team to sit down together and celebrate our work to date in the venue of the Mc Ewan Hall.  A feeling of gratitude and joyfulness on what was a very wet day (well it is Edinburgh)!
