Changes to Work Arrangements for BIAT Staff

March 27, 2020

An update from the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania in response to COVID-19, including our arrangement of staff during this time and how to contact us.

The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania is committed to playing our part in reducing the risk of infection and minimising the spread of COVID-19. Accordingly, due to increasing precautions being implemented, BIAT has determined all staff will now work from home. Staff are still available via phone, email or online.

The length of this arrangement is subject to advice from health authorities; we will keep you informed as the circumstances change.

BIAT has postponed all meetings and events involving any face to face contact, including Peer Support Group meetings and Brain Injury Training.  

Although our office at the ABC Building in Liverpool Street is closed, staff are still available via phone, email or online.

To contact BIAT please:


Phone: 03 6230 9800 or Freecall 1300 242 827

During this difficult time, we thank you for your understanding and hope you stay well.

Please, don’t forget to look after not only yourself, but also your fellow Tasmanians.

Kind regards

Deborah Byrne
Executive Officer
