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.
