ABI Lifeline

ABI Lifeline is a 3 year, Big Lottery funded project that aims to offer people with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) the opportunity to up-skill, gain confidence and once again play an important role in their local community.

The project takes an innovative, user-led approach and we hope to share what we have learned from delivering the Volunteering Solutions project to inspire other providers nationwide.

The importance of community is central to the project as we look to engage the families and friends of people with ABI in to the heart of our work. We aim to provide advice and support to these individuals and facilitate an environment of sharing stories and passing on knowledge.

Put into 3 clear outcomes, we aim to:

  • Improve confidence, self-esteem and motivation for people with ABI in London and the South East.
  • Open up better opportunities for people with ABI through upskilling, one-to-one support and supported volunteering.
  • Build stronger communities, with more people with a disability actively engaged in community volunteering, and people with an ABI and their families working together to address problems. 

If you have an Acquired Brain Injury and are looking to re-engage with your community, or if you know someone who may benefit from this service, please get in touch.
