The Link Programme is offered anywhere in Northern Ireland and provides mentorship by Brain Injury Matters staff or volunteers who share similar leisure interests. We offer peer support, introduction to others who have experienced an acquired brain injury and links to local social activities either on a 1:1 or on a group basis.

Our project aims to:

  • Encourage integration into the local community
  • Offer pleasurable and age appropriate activity
  • Increase social confidence with peers
  • Promote communication skills
  • Reduce social isolation
  • Encourage leisure activity outside the family unit
