Over December and January SL&RR trainers Amie O’Shea, Linda Stokoe and Rhys Nagas will be training new Peer Educators and Program Partners in Sydney for the SL&RR: Brain Injury program.
This program has been development through a collaboration between the SL&RR National team at Deakin University and Synapse to expand the SL&RR model for people with brain injury. This involved a research project collecting new stories from people with brain injury and developing some new program activities based on the key messages from the new stories. A Research Advisory Group, which was made up of people with lived experience of the brain injury and people who work in the brain injury rehab/service community and other SL&RR people, helped inform the research process.
The new Peer Educators and Program Partners will be talking about the new SL&RR: Brain Injury stories:
- Emmet ‘Less lost than I used to be’
- Max ‘We met on the internet’
- Georgina ‘Simple Kisses’
- Soraya ‘Not the nothing girl’
