Why BIGA Care ?


Living with a disability or serious illness not only affects the individual but also their family and carers. Fostering a culture where sharing of experience, wisdom, networks, knowledge and know how helps individuals to develop knowledge about how to achieve their goals. The BIGA Care website aims to educate members of the community on where and how they can obtain information and support to resolve issues and understand the possibilities the future holds after being affected by a disability or illness. The site details where support services are located, advises of special events for the disabled and gives access to professionals who can assist every member who can be affected when a trauma strikes. Members of BIGA Care also have access to online resource, education tools, chat rooms and focus groups where they can talk about concerns in confidence and can connect with those who have or share a similar experience giving them a feeling of belonging and reassurance that their are not alone.
