Adult Burns Support UK website goes live
20 October 2017
Dan's Fund for Burns, a registered UK charity offering practical support to adult burn survivors, announces the new adult burn support website.
The Adult Burns Support UK website brings together the most helpful resources and information available to burned adults, families and friends, burns practitioners and anyone interested. It covers many aspects of support including Emotional Wellbeing, Rehabilitation, Appearance and Research; it will act as a hub to signpost users to what services and information are available in their area and how to access them. Burns Professionals and Burn Survivors have provided advice and input and contributed to the content of the site for which Dan’s Fund for Burns is extremely grateful. Click on the link and have a look around http://adultburnsupportuk.org/
We will be adding and updating information regularly. If you can’t find what you are looking for, want to contribute new information, a survivor story or want to provide us with feedback, please do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The website is part of an ongoing Adult Burn Support UK Project which is striving to improve support available to adult burn survivors in the UK and is funded by Dan's Fund for Burns. The next stage of development we are looking at is the possible addition of a chat forum – watch this space!
Dan's Fund for Burns, a UK registered burns charity was established by Polly (Miller) Brooks after her husband Dan, best friend and seven other friends were killed in the 2002 Bali bombings. Polly suffered 43% body burns and knows just how painful and devastating, both physically and emotionally, it is to be burned. She saw the great need for on-going support both financial and psychological for those affected by burn injuries. The main aim of Dan's Fund for Burns is to be a ready source of assistance by providing swift and practical support for UK-wide adult burn survivors in need.
