In January 2020 The Cridge Centre for the Family began providing individualized support to women who are survivors of intimate partner violence and have received brain injuries from their partners.
Since that time, we have continued to expand the program as funding allows. The need for supports is increasing exponentially as many more women are identified as having a brain injury related to Intimate Partner Violence.
The type of support required varies from person to person, but the central focus is to provide trauma-informed skills, knowledge and support to women to manage their health and wellness and improve their access to health services and community supports.
The effects of trauma coupled with cognitive impairment and physical limitations require a highly individualized support plan that focuses on the specific challenges faced by each woman.
Together with their support worker, women can find healing, stability and hope for the future. The life-changing effects of consistent, non-judgmental and ongoing support cannot be underestimated.

We are grateful for the support of the Vancouver Foundation, the Victoria Foundation (Marymax Fund, Martin and Diana Hocking Fund and Elizabeth Russ Fund), Community Foundations of Canada (Fund for Gender Equality), Stronger Philanthropy and many private donors for supporting our new program of Intimate Partner Violence-related Brain Injury. This funding will enable us to provide relevant training to medical professionals in the CRD.
