Headwest and Synapse

Recently, Synapse  and the Brain Injury Association of WA (Headwest) have been in discussions about the potential for Headwest to join Synapse in endeavours to provide information, services and advocacy for people impacted by brain injury across Australia.

 
At the Headwest AGM on October 17, 2018, the Headwest Board formally resolved to merge with Synapse.

This means Headwest will shortly cease operation and will commence operating as a part of Synapse Australia. As such, Synapse will take on the important role of ensuring Western Australians impacted by brain injury are represented and are connected to the supports and services that are most important to them.


Synapse has continued the legacy of a number of unique organisations and unique histories including Brain Injury Association QLD, Brain Injury Association NSW, Stroke Association QLD and now Brain Injury Association WA.This development strengthens Synapse's capability to raise awareness and deliver specialist services for people impacted by brain injury across Australia.

As we move forward, we acknowledge the strong networks and support for Headwest over many years. We are committed to ensuring the continuation of the relationships upon which Headwest built foundations for services and engagement with communities, organisations and partners. We look forward to continuing this into an exciting future.
