Brain Injury Awareness Week
As part of BIA Week 15-21 August 2016 the Wonthaggi Social Support participants displayed their art work at the local library. The exhibition was officially opened by the mayor of the Bass Coast Shire and was achieved with the support of Bass Coast Shire community grants program. Pictures were also displayed in shop front windows by the business owners in Wonthaggi as a community awareness program. The exhibition is the culmination of a year's work by group members and our volunteer artist Sharyn Latham. Board of Management members were also present at the opening.
The participants in the Trafalgar Social Support group visited Lowanna College Year 11/12 Psychology students to give a talk about ABI and the effects on each person as an individual. Year 11/12 Students are at an age to obtain their drivers learners permit and one of our TAC clients told the students his story.
The Warragul Social Support group are having a Mad Hatters Tea Party , we look forward to seeing some photos of this event.
