The impact of traumatic brain injuries and how we help

Brain Injury NZ and Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust are excited to announce a brand new conference next year – taking place at the Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 March 2025.

TBIs can have wide-ranging effects, including cognitive, behavioural, emotional, and physical challenges. These effects can hinder independence, relationships, employment, education and participation in leisure activities.

At the Laura Fergusson Brain Injury Trust we understand the diverse nature of TBI effects and provide help and support through a highly skilled team of over 220 specially trained professionals. This team includes speech language therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, neuropsychologists, dieticians, nurses, rehabilitation coaches, support workers and social workers, all working together to support the needs of each individual client.

Our job is to help people regain as much independence as possible so they can live a fulfilling and rewarding life. We support over 1,000 people on any given day in Canterbury and across the South Island.
