More information

Peer support can be helpful in people's journey towards recovery - for both the individual and their families. 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.

The group is open to anyone that has been impacted by an acquired brain injury, including those caused by: stroke, falls, assault, concussion, road crash, infection, brain tumour, hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain), poisoning, and degenerative neurological conditions such as MS etc.

If you have any questions please contact Rosie or Sienna, BIAT project officers.
