Connect on Facebook

Facebook support groups can be a powerful way to feel both a sense of community and of being understood, from the comfort of your own home.

Our Synapse Reconnections – Carers Facebook group is moderated by Synapse staff with either lived experience or a wealth of knowledge about brain injury. There are regular Facebook live interviews on managing in the caring role, as well as online meetings. To protect your privacy, this is a closed Facebook group – which means that only members of the group can see what you have posted.
