Do something incredible today – become a friend of Day One Trauma Support

In the briefest of moments, a catastrophic injury can shatter someone’s life.

It’s too much to piece it back together on their own.

That’s why we need caring and compassionate people like you to help people facing life after a traumatic injury.

We’ll be there from the start and for as long as it takes – will you join us today by becoming a friend of Day One Trauma Support?

Together, we can make sure no one is left to rebuild their life on their own.

Your regular gift will fund advice, support and emergency grants so our support workers can help people begin to rebuild their future.

Won’t it feel good knowing that every month you’ll be making a positive contribution to people recovering from major trauma? Thank you

How we’ll use your gift

All gifts will support people affected by major trauma wherever they are, and for as long as they need us.

Some recent examples of projects and services we've funded thanks to our wonderful supporters include:

  • Emergency grants to cover costs incurred during a hospital stay: new clothes to ensure someone leaves hospital with dignity, travel and overnight stays so a loved one can remain close, are all things you’ll be helping out with.
  • Emotional, mental and practical support from our team while in hospital.
  • Family counselling – a major traumatic accident affects those we love too and we offer support for family members too
