If you are a person with an acquired neurological disability, a close other with an acquired neurological disability, or a disability support worker, we want to hear your views about the factors that influence the quality of paid disability support. 

We will be facilitating 1:1 interviews to discuss your experiences and perspectives. If you are interested in participating, please email research@summerfoundation.org.au and we will tell you more about the project.

Are you aged between 18-65 years, have an acquired brain injury (ABI) and receive NDIS funding?

If so, you are invited to share your experiences during a 1-hour interview which would be done by phone or Zoom.
