Are you a family member or carer of someone who has an acquired brain injury (ABI) or disorder? Would you like to meet other people who also care for a person with ABI and share experiences? Then the Brain InjuryPeerLink Program is for you.
PeerLink is a peer support program where carers of people living with an acquired brain injury can talk together about the issues and challenges of being a carer. You can share strategies you have used to deal with these experiences.
Who is PeerLink for?
PeerLink is specifically designed for adult family members and carers of people with any ABI or disorder (for example brain injury caused by accidents or neurological conditions like Stroke, brain cancer and Multiple Sclerosis).
