Brain Injury Foundation (BIF)

Brain Injury Foundation is a support group for brain injury survivors and their families and carers. It was launched by a group of survivors, carers and volunteers in August 2012 and has members from Newry and Mourne, Armagh, Banbridge and Dungannon. BIF supports people with all forms of brain injuries including strokes and differs from many charities in that it is service-user led. Many of the services offered by BIF are delivered in part or completely by brain injury survivors or carers.

Mentor: Bolster

The group wished to build on their outreach programme in Armagh, Craigavon & Dungannon to support those isolated from living with a brain injury following on from a previous Elevate project.
