Making a difference to those living with SCI
Since 1984, PBF Australia have been working with rehabilitation services to improve the outcomes for people with a spinal cord injury. Through the generosity of individuals and corporates, the PBF team has been able to donate much needed pieces of equipment to clients working with the Princess Alexandra Hospital’s (PAH) Spinal Outreach Team (SPOT).
SPOT provides early intervention and education services for people with spinal cord injuries. They also help to problem solve issues that affect their client’s participation in community life by identifying ways to help.
Kiley Pershouse, Manager of SPOT said the PBF Gifting Program had made a huge difference to the clients it was able to support.
“Recently PBF were able to assist a client return to study by funding a computer. Having access to the right equipment can make a big difference” she said. “The equipment PBF Australia has been able to provide through generous donations has made a positive difference for our clients.”
PBF Australia’s Gifting Fund is designed to provide financial support for the purchase of critical equipment that will improve the quality and freedom in someone’s life. The gifting program relies upon donations received by PBF. Stringent criteria are applied to all gifting requests to ensure full value is received for all donated funds.
Consider making a tax deductible donation today. Your support will help those Australian’s living with spinal cord injury to move forward.
“I would like to give a big thank you for the money you have granted me for the purchase of a computer. It is very much appreciated and will help with my studies.” Brett, PBF Gifting Fund Recipient.
It is more than just monetary aid. By donating you are giving people independence and a greater peace of mind.
