Help and information for organisations and students
It is estimated that 2,500 Tasmanians sustain a brain injury every year. Given the prevalence of brain injury in the community, most organisations will have clients or employees with brain injury.
Provide you with information about supporting someone with a brain injury
While the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania is no longer funded as a brain injury information and referral service - we can still advise organisations/services supporting people living with or impacted by brain injury on where they can access this information.
