The group is for people with brain injury, their families and carers to come together to share, learn and connect with others.
People often say that peer support was very helpful in their journey towards recovery. People who have 'been there' have knowledge and expertise based on their own lived experience. Sharing this knowledge can help others to understand their own experience and move forward.
