700,000 people in Australia live with a brain injury – 75% of survivors are aged under 65.
Survivors of physical trauma and chronic illness often experience intense feelings of isolation which is insufficiently addressed by clinical services.
20% of suicides are linked to mental and physical health problems. 96% of young stroke survivors often lack access to follow-up therapy and support to resume everyday life.
We provide survivor-led support and leadership programs that promote confidence, improve self-esteem, communication skills, enrich rehab outcomes and enhance overall capacity (both personally and professionally) to participate and contribute to community life.
We are a predominantly peer-led organisation dedicated to supporting, empowering, and rewarding the resilient survivors in our community.
We are a worldwide community of Stroke and ABI survivors plus their supporters from over 50 countries.
We partner researchers with defined cohorts to build a better future for survivors! So far, we’ve produced over 500 pieces of unbiased research data.
and for your support to make even more impact!
