AphasiaNZ has been offering support services to people affected by aphasia for the last 15 years. These services have been provided at no cost by our team of professional Community Aphasia Advisors (CAAs).
Our main priorities are to ensure that we can continue to help the thousands of people in New Zealand living with or affected by aphasia.
To achieve this goal, AphasiaNZ has expanded its Community Aphasia Advisor (CAA) service to meet the demand for support.
In the past 12 months, we have added 5 new CAAs to the team, held nearly 20% more Kōrero Club meetings, and carried out over 80% more home visits than in 2021.
Overcoming the Immediate Challenge
To enable us to offer these cost-and barrier-free services we have relied mainly on grants from Trusts and Foundations. We have also been grateful for all the donations we have received from individuals.
As the country continues to recover from the effects of the COVID pandemic, it is apparent that sourcing funding for our services is becoming more difficult. Many of the Trusts and Foundations that we have relied on for funding have been affected by reduced income, resulting in less funding and longer distribution timelines.
With your help we know we can overcome this challenging time!
We need your help now more than ever
We are determined to continue to support and empower people with aphasia, helping them to overcome whatever challenges they face. With your help, we can continue to make this happen.
By donating today, you’ll be supporting us and the people we serve right when we need you most!
It is important that we make it through this challenging time and enter 2023 in good financial shape so we can continue to support everyone who needs us.
Despite the continued uncertainty, together we can rise to the challenge.
