The Brain Injury Alliance is a province-wide organization in British Columbia composed of individuals and organizations working together to improve the quality of life for persons living with a brain injury, their families, and their communities.
The Alliance was formed in 2014 to correct a serious health funding disparity that caused a dramatic reduction in the quantity, and quality, of charitable community non-profit brain injury services in British Columbia. Since 2015, the Brain Injury Alliance has addressed the funding disparity to non-profit brain injury service agencies with the assistance of two grants from the Province. These two grants, totalling $6 million, established the Brain Injury Fund (BIF) to help support brain injury societies across the province.
The Brain Injury Alliance has only two functions; the acquisition of funding to support community non-profit brain injury associations and groups, and to provide Government with an unbiased peer driven mechanism for accountable funding disbursement. The Alliance membership is limited to eligible charitable community brain injury associations in British Columbia. Individuals are not eligible for membership in the Brain Injury Alliance.
As an individual, you are not able to apply for a grant directly from the Brain Injury Alliance. If you require assistance for educational or employment related training, however, you may quality for a Dr. Gur Singh Memorial Education Grant. Please contact a brain injury association near you, who will apply for a grant on your behalf if you qualify. If you are not aware of services near you, please let us know where you are located, and we will inform you of whom to contact in your area.
