Families4Families: ABI Support Network

Families4Families: ABI Support Network was established by people living with acquired brain injury and their families as a result of consultation and research work undertaken by Flinders University and funds provided by Julia Farr MS McLeod Benevolent Fund in 2012.

Families4Families: ABI Support Network involved the development of peer networks run for and by people living with acquired brain injury and their families. While offering a social impact, the focus was in mindful support and capacity building.

Key outcomes included: 

  • Development of an extensive network of peer support groups in metropolitan Adelaide and country SA.
  • Development of a reputable methodology.
  • Development of individual planning mechanisms.
  • Secured NDIS funding to continue work.
  • Creation of a new consumer controlled community organisation.
