Acquired Brain Injury

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)  –  A great life beyond your injury.

Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) can be sudden, happening to any of us at any stage, changing life dramatically. These changes may impact others – parents, children, partners, friends and colleagues. It is important for us to know and understand what has mattered most to you prior to the ABI – your school, work, relationships and being part of community and family life.

Getting the right support is critical. We are a recognised and respected ABI Specialist with dedicated teams working with children, families and adults, supporting your progress in regaining and restoring what is important to you.

Through our support services, we embark on a journey together. Our journey’s destination remains a hope and vision for the future, shaped by our clients' goals, where life can be enjoyed as fully and wholly as possible.
