This month, Slater and Gordon worked with The Silverlining Brain Injury Charity on an art project with a mission.

The Let Your Heart Shine digital artbook was created to “help others find what makes their heart shine.” It tells the stories of its members, or “Silverliners”, each of whom have an acquired brain injury.

“The artbook showcases, in the most inspiring way, the breadth of activities which the charity offers, and the talent of the many Silverliners who have contributed to the project.”

“It’s a real pleasure to see the joy that producing this artbook has given to its talented contributors, and we very much hope that it will inspire others with acquired brain injuries to reach out and join the ever-growing band of Silverliners,” said Will Cornwell, a principal lawyer at Slater and Gordon.

One of the contributors, Michaela, was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2012. While the cancer took her confidence away, she said “Silverlining gave it back”. Her pieces appear along with the work of artists from all walks of life, beautifully showcased by our in-house graphic designer, Donella Frampton, as a combination of drawings, paintings, mosaics, poetry and much more.

“It has been a pleasure to create the Let Your Heart Shine art book alongside The Silverlining Brain Injury Charity. The opportunity for those who have sustained a brain injury to have access to a range of creative activity groups and support, but also friendship and understanding is completely invaluable. The high level of talent throughout the book demonstrates the importance of these groups to provide a comfortable space to allow ability to flourish.”

“Slater and Gordon, as a legal panel member to the charity, provides expertise at some of the hardest times in life. A question I have regularly thought about is what happens next? The book highlights that no matter what stage of recovery or rehabilitation, there is access to others that understand and champion each other, which is something I am sure we would all like in our lives,” said Jamie McDonnell, an account manager at Slater and Gordon who managed the project.

The Silverlining Brain Injury Charity helps those affected by brain injury rebuild their lives, find purpose, and make connections with others. Since the pandemic, the charity has been providing online activities to inspire and support others to discover what makes them happy, connected and fulfilled – one of Silverlining’s central goals.

Activities are co-ordinated through the charity’s website. Membership is free, with the benefits offered, priceless.
