Education and Awareness

Our Programs

The Victoria Brain Injury Society is excited to promote brain injury education and awareness in our community. We will partner with other organizations and businesses to help spread awareness. We provide free educational presentations to the general public and social service agencies seeking to gain an understanding of the complexities of living with, or working with people who have an acquired brain injury.

Individual Support

Brain injuries are like fingerprints – each one is unique. We understand brain injury and our case managers can work with individuals to navigate their new reality in a way that best suits their personal needs.
