Our Organisation

While based in Hobart, BIAT provides services to all regions of Tasmania.

Following the merger of two organisations in mid-1997, the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania (BIAT) was formed as the peak body in Tasmania to monitor and support the long term needs of people living with or affected by acquired brain injury (ABI).

BIAT receives re-current funding from the Department of Health and Human Services (Disability Services).  Upon application, BIAT also receives annual funding from the Motor Accident Insurance Board Injury Prevention and Management Foundation Charities Committee.  Other regular sources of income include membership fees, fee for service and donations.
