The Brain Injury Association of Waterloo-Wellington (BIAWW) is a charitable organization devoted to providing advocacy, education, connections, and empowerment for individuals with acquired brain injury and their families in the Waterloo-Wellington region.
We advocate for increased services for individuals with brain injuries.
We educate elementary children and the public on helmet & brain safety.
We connect survivors & caregivers to professionals and to others like themselves through support groups, peer mentoring and social events.
We empower survivors through art, mental health and other programs to allow them to deal with their injury in the best possible way.
- We provide resources on how to access community resources such as legal, rehabilitation, health care, work re-entry, school re-entry and community services. We make available information on concussion and acquired brain injury to survivors and their caregivers.
- We offer a community prevention program called "Lidz on Kidz" which allows us to visit area schools, minor sport leagues and community events to promote wearing appropriate equipment and how to play safely with the proper helmet.
- We provide a caregivers support group called "Care to Share" where caregivers can speak with their peers to gain support and develop friendships.
To give support, hope and answers to survivors of ABI.
To be recognized as pioneers in meeting the needs of survivors and their caregivers and setting the standard for innovative program delivery, education and prevention of ABI.
