WHO ARE WE?
BITP is an independent privately funded (supported by Procter & Gamble’s PWD ‘People With Disabilities’ network), non-profit organisation which aims to provide a sense of hope that some form of recovery is possible following a brain injury. We also offer legal, clinical and treatment connections for those suffering from a brain injury. There is a list of useful organisations in our information section and our hope is that this website can become a centralised portal for brain injury recovery information.
There are three pillars which may be of use to brain injury survivors, their families, friends and colleagues:
KNOWLEDGE – Explanation of what a brain injury is and most importantly what effects it can have on people’s lives, behaviours and abilities
INFORMATION – Key details about where people (brain injury survivors, friends and family) can find help. Help can take many forms but for now we will focus on the key hospitals, centres of excellence, therapy units, helpful organisations and specific doctors operating in the area of brain injury
HOPE – Having a brain injury may first appear dreadful but here you can observe (read or watch video posts) how others have adjusted to their new capabilities and above all else there is hope
WHY ARE WE HERE?
BITP was set up by a brain injury survivor after it became clear just how difficult it was to navigate to a place of recovery. In so doing we want to share what has aided other brain injury survivors to help them find resolution. See below or go to our hope section to read stories and hear of experiences from other brain injury survivors.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
We aim to help by sharing stories from brain injury survivors of where they found help and providing links to other organisations who operate within this brain injury recovery space. We want to grow as a community and that is only made possible by the input of brain injury survivors sharing their experiences and useful feedback and advice. Don’t hesitate to contact us!
We strive to promote important information through sharing knowledge and offering hope to all brain injury survivors and their loved ones…
By reading and viewing other brain injury survivors’ stories, people can see that there is ‘hope’ that some form of recovery is possible.
