“This investment will touch a lot of lives” said John Simpson, from the Brain Injury Alliance. “We are grateful to the province of BC for supporting our work, and helping service providers across the province to continue making a difference in their communities.”
The Alliance will distribute the funding to organizations in two stages. In the first stage, $10,000 will be issued to each of the province’s 16 community-based, non-profit brain-injury service providers to help with operational costs.
“Brain injury has the ability to shatter lives,” said Terry Lake. “Left untreated, it can lead to issues that affect the whole community, which is why the funding provided to the Brain Injury Alliance is so important, to make sure help goes to those who need it.”
