BIAT and Systemic Advocacy

Systemic advocacy is a term we use to describe our function as a voice to tell governments and other decision-makers about changes required to improve the service system for people living with or affected by brain injury. Systemic advocacy work includes media, participation in committees, submissions to government policy review processes and direct representation to politicians and other key decision makers. As a member of Brain Injury Australia, BIAT also refers key state issues to the national agenda.
