June 2016 Recipients
Headway Brain Injury Association in Mount Maunganui received $1,299 to replace their broken desktop computer. This essential tool enables the liaison officer to communicate effectively with people and those in the community affected by brain injury.
The association assists individuals with brain injury, their families and carers to achieve a better quality of life and maximise potential, choice and independence.
The liaison officer heavily relies on computer technology to provide brain injury awareness by way of support, advice, education and information services and to measure and communicate results through newsletters, annual surveys and feedback forms. The new computer will enable her to complete these tasks, benefitting the wider brain injury society.
