The Heading Out Program was created in 2015 to provide expanded social opportunities for young adults with brain injuries. Our aim is to provide a safe and accepting environment for young adults with an ABI to go out, make friends and build their confidence in social situations.
Peer hosts, who are young adults from the ABI Leadership Team, model and facilitate connection and interaction. Heads Together volunteers are also provided for support, safety and wellbeing.
Participants must be 18 or above, medically stable, and have the ability to participate and communicate. Anyone with high risk and/or support needs would bring their own support person if required. Partners or a close friend are welcome to attend.
Membership to the Heading Out program is free, costs incurred at the event (such as travel and food) will be paid for by the participant.
By creating events that are thoughtfully planned to maximise independence and engagement in a fun social setting, we are providing young people with the opportunity to build their own social network and to always have a place where they belong.
