Brain Injury Network NSW event connects services across the state


This week we held our Brain Injury Network event in New South Wales, connecting providers and specialists in our combined pursuit to support people impacted by brain injury.

This online event held on November 17 allowed people from a wide range of locations to attend, from as far north as Tweed Heads, to Shoalhaven and Murrumbidgee in the south, out west to Dubbo and everywhere in between (we even had a medical doctor join us from France!)

Almost 50 attendees from a diverse range of fields and organisations joined together to share about their services and expertise in the Brain Injury space. These included allied health services, local area health services, NSW Health brain injury units, carer’s services, Service Australia, vocational services, and Indigenous advocacy services

You can watch the recording of the event in the above video.

Expertly guided by the Synapse NSW team, attendees enthusiastically shared about their work, asked questions and made new connections throughout the course of the event. The response to this was overwhelmingly positive, with many participants sharing their feedback with us shortly afterwards.

“I wanted to thank you for the wonderful session this morning. What a great opportunity to connect with other providers working in the brain injury space! I’ve made note of the services and contact details for a few of the attendees I’ll be reaching out to in order to assist my clients.”
– Alexa Locke – Resilia

“Thanks for the invite to today’s NSW Brain Injury Network event, it was great! I was taking lots of notes and am looking forward to seeing the recording and sharing some key feedback with my service.”
– Sarah McLaughlin – South West BIRS

Although this online event was hugely successful, we look forward to organising a combined in-person and online event in 2022 as COVID-19 restrictions continue to ease.

A big thanks to the Synapse team in NSW for making this event possible.
