Burn Support Group Charitable Trust aim to support and assist people with burn injuries by:

Visiting patients and their families in Middlemore Hospital.

Improving patient care through the funding of equipment to help burn patients, over and above that funded by the health service.

Fostering the sharing of information between burn survivors, their families, health professionals and other interested parties.

Offering to accompany and support children who have burn injuries when they return to school.

Providing opportunities for mutual support for burn survivors, such as workshops and our annual Burn Support Children’s camp for 7-18 year olds.

We are an Auckland group, but also provide support for individuals from across New Zealand whom we come into contact with during hospital visiting. We provide patient information packs, and can ‘buddy’ individuals up with others who have had burn injuries. Children from all over NZ can attend the annual camp Awhi.

Feedback on burns awareness programme

Received from Youth Justice North, Auckland, October 2008

On behalf of Youth Justice North, Korowai Manaaki, I would like to extend an immense thank you for your tremendous contribution and facilitation of the Burns awareness programme at Youth Justice North on Friday 10th October 2008

It was an awesome day, I strongly believe that our young people took the message on board and learnt a lot.

Our young people are really appreciative of the wealth of knowledge you brought with you and for this I am also really appreciative.

The programme was fantastic, and we have had a lot of positive feedback from young people and also staff. The visuals were a great tool and advantage with getting the message across and it also pays to mention that your set up was superb for the learning environment.

I hope that the community become aware to the severity of the burns as this is very educational and life-saving.

So once again THANK YOU VERY MUCH. We really appreciate your work.

 Yours truly

Andrew Tauai
