Fundraising for Brain Injury Association

Posted at 5:03am Thursday 01 Nov, 2018 | By Wanaka Sun editor@thewanakasun.co.nz

Non-profit organisation, Brain Injury Association of Otago (BIA), held its annual appeal in Wanaka last week. BIA is funded by grants, donations and a contract with the Ministry of Health.

Among its services in Otago, BIA provides a support group and free liaison service in Wanaka. The liaison service is available to people who have received a brain injury through a medical event, such as a stroke, or a traumatic brain injury from a fall, assault, motor vehicle accident or concussion. The service provides information, education, support and advocacy, as well as facilitating support groups and connections between clients and community agencies.
