The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania (BIAT) would like to talk to people with brain injury and/or their family members about three projects we are working on.
The projects include:
*Setting up support groups (face to face,Facebook etc), across the state, which are run by people with brain injury, for people with brain injury;
*Establishing Brain Injury Advisory and Consultation Committees (ACCs) across Tasmania. The ACCs will get together to talk about issues that affect them and other people living with or impacted by brain injury (ie families, carers), and work with BIAT to come up with ways for solving those issues; and
*Developing ways to help people share information about their brain injury with other people such as employers, potential employers,TAFE etc.
We need your help to make sure these projects truly include and reflect the lived experience of people with brain injury and their families.
Please come along to share your views and ideas with others, and support BIAT to make these projects a success.
A light lunch will be provided.
If you would like to attend one of the forums please contact:
Robyn McWaldron on email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone: 0460 812 428 or 6230 9800
