ABISS Affiliate Membership/Volunteering
ABISS (Acquired Brain Injury Survivor Solutions) currently exists as an advocacy group only.
Our goal is to advocate for change that will facilitate and enhance the recovery of those affected by an acquired brain injury.
While we will be pursuing other projects in this endeavour, currently our focus is on fixing our broken automobile insurance system to ensure that future ABI patients are not faced with an adversarial system but rather a supportive one.
Our goal is to advocate for change that will facilitate and enhance recovery of those affected by an ABI and while we are happy to redirect people to their local Brain Injury Association, we do not offer medical advice, peer mentoring or social group activities and are not able to provide assistance to those seeking financial, social or rehabilitation support.
However, our efforts to bring awareness to the problems with the insurance industry have happily resulted in interest from several groups and opportunities that will require our small group to be spread very thin if we wish to have success.
If you are interested in becoming an Affiliate Member of ABISS, please send us your contact information so that we can keep you informed about the groups work. If you are able to volunteer some time, your help with event organization, technological or administrative jobs would be greatly appreciated. Please fill out our Affiliate Member/Volunteer Intake Form and tell us a bit about yourself and in what areas you feel you would best be able to assist us.
Finally, should you wish to join in the fight for auto insurance reform, we welcome your help in spreading the message and by contacting your local MPP to voice your concerns. We have provided a draft letter you may use if you wish. Together we can make our small voice a lot louder.
Thank you for your interest.
