LifeMoves Program

LifeMoves is an 8- week peer support program for people impacted by acquired brain injury and/or degenerative brain conditions. It is an opportunity for group members to discuss the challenges they are facing, and share advice to help overcome those challenges.

LifeMoves caters for groups of 10-12 people who meet for 2.5 hours per week in a community facility. It’s free of charge for participants and is supported by a volunteer facilitator and peers.

All facilitators and peers supporting LifeMoves are themselves living with an acquired brain injury, have personally participated in the program and have received facilitation skills training.

LifeMoves helps participants tackle a range of issues of relevance to them, from physical challenges to financial and emotional issues.
