About Our Organisation
The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania is a non-government, state-wide, not-for-profit organisation working for people with acquired brain injury (ABI), their families and other stakeholders. BIAT has a range of members.
BIAT plays a key role in activities that contribute to a community that is more informed about acquired brain injury and has a strong focus on the area of advocacy with an emphasis on representation and support of the acquired brain injury (ABI) sector.
While the BIAT office is based in Hobart, BIAT provides services to all regions of Tasmania.
BIAT receives re-current funding from the Department of Communities (Disability and Community Services). Upon application, BIAT also receives annual funding from the Motor Accident Insurance Board Injury Prevention and Management Foundation. Other regular sources of income include membership fees, fee for service (such as professional training) and donations.
