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.

DERMATOME AND TROLLEY 2015

Each year Burn Support Group Charitable Trust donates equipment to the National Burn Centre at Middlemore Hospital. This year a Dermatome and trolley were on their wishlist. Along with Southern Stars Charitable Trust we fundraised to purchase this equipment. Richard Wong She said the Dermatome is a huge step up from the equipment they previously used (harvesting knife - as seen below next to the Dermatome) The harvesting knife relies on the operator, whereas the Dermatome is machine operated which gives a more accurate thickness for skin grafts and the scarring is tidier and more consistent.
