TABIS (The Tasmanian Acquired Brain Injury Service, a division of Li-Ve Tasmania) continue their Cyber Safety campaign this month with the launch of the easy read resource: 'A guide for staying safe online' and a FREE Stay Safe Online information session in Launceston on Friday 22nd March.
BIAT attended the Hobart launch to learn more about this fantastic new easy read guide - designed to empower people living with a disability to stay safer online.
The national resource is a collaboration between TABIS/Li-Ve Tasmania, ThinkUKnow Australia, Tasmania Police and the Australian Federal Police.
The resource will assist people living with brain injury, and their family members and carers, to navigate online challenges such as online grooming, sexting, cyberbullying and cybercrime.
Visit our primary resource page to download a copy of the guide.

This presentation is aimed at parents, carers, and educators for people with disability. Learn more about people with disability and the online environment, and how you can help them to be safe and responsible users of technology.
Discover ways you can stay safe on the internet and what to do if things go wrong for you or someone you support.
Date: Friday 22nd March
Venue: Tamar Room, TABIS, Level 4, 11 High Street, Launceston
