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 was put in place to provide financial support for the purchase of critical equipment that will improve the quality and freedom in someone’s life. The gifting program is possible because of the donations PBF receive. 100% of all donations are returned to the people who need it, providing support where unmet needs exist. Due to limited resources PBF Australia is a funder of last resort, with all applications being assessed independently against stringent gifting criteria.
PBF Australia ask that you consider donating today. Your support will help those Australian’s living with spinal cord injury to move forward. It is more than just monetary aid. You are giving people independence and a greater peace of mind.
