People living with brain injury, including families, friends and carers, often say that peer support was very helpful to them on 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.

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.
