Leadership Plus and United Brains are running a project to develop and promote self-advocacy groups for people with acquired brain injury.
Self-advocacy is a very effective model of support for people with acquired brain injury (ABI). The experience of ABI involves adjustment, learning, adaptation and the support of people with lived experience of ABI is a vital component in adapting and ongoing enjoyment of life. Access to such groups can be limited in regional Victoria, limiting options with people with ABI who are not in metropolitan areas.
United Brains is a network of self-help, self-advocacy and support groups for people with an Acquired Brain Injury throughout Victoria, and in conjunction with Leadership Plus, has secured funding from the Department of Health and Human Services, Victoria to develop three self-advocacy groups in regional Victoria.
Find more about self advocacy groups along with lots of useful ABI information at the United Brains website:
