While each office works independently of the others, our 14 regional Brain Injury Associations all act as information and education hubs for those suffering from a brain injury. Our Liaison Officers work from each office and out in the community to help reconnect patients with a life they’ll enjoy living; assisting with meetings, paperwork, interviews and general day-to-day formalities. We focus on smoothing the transition back into a meaningful life, while providing the connections and information needed to support both the injured person and their families and loved ones through their journey. With brain injuries occurring every 15 minutes in New Zealand, the statistics are showing that more kiwis are affected by brain injuries than by cancer. The ongoing effects of living with a brain injury can be hard to quantify: with each injury affecting each patient differently. The Brain Injury New Zealand helps those directly impacted by a brain injury continue living a life they’ll enjoy; through connecting the right services and support to those who need them the most.
