HSABC Webinar: Brain Injury 101 & Applications in the Shelter Sector
February 17, 2021, 10:00 - 11:30 AM
Geoff Sing, President of the BC Brain Injury Society will be discussing the topic of Brain Injury and how it affects people, and how we as frontline workers and staff can support recovery and care in the homelessness services sector. He will be joined by a survivor of brain injury Tori Dach who will be sharing their stories of navigating the system.
Geoff has been working in the field of brain injury for the past 20 years. Presently, he is the Manager of Brain Injury Services with The Cridge Centre for the Family. This program includes a continuum of residential programs, community support clients and several employment training programs for survivors of a brain injury. He served on the steering committee for the Pacific Coast Brain Injury Conference for 15 years. He was the chairperson for Advocacy Plus – a program that trained survivors to advocate for themselves. Geoff has a Masters of Administration from the University of Victoria.
As a stereotypical survivor of a brain injury (at 18 years of age he was in a serious car crash that had him in a coma for a number of days; as well he suffered several concussions in athletic pursuits) the field of brain injury is Geoff’s life and passion. As an advocate, supporter or a “whatever it takes” proponent, Geoff’s goal for survivors of a brain injury and there loved ones is your goal – find and develop the best services possible and achieve the best outcomes possible.
