About the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania


The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania is a non-government, state-wide, not-for-profit organisation that has a range of members.

 

While based in Hobart, BIAT provides services to all regions of Tasmania.

BIAT receives re-current funding from the Department of Health and Human Services (Disability Services). Upon application, BIAT also receives annual funding from the Motor Accident Insurance Board Injury Prevention and Management Foundation Charities Committee. Other regular sources of income include membership fees, fee for service and donations.

 

Our Mission

  • Advocate to address systemic issues which impact on people living with or affected by brain injury.

 

Our Objectives

  • Actively facilitate the ongoing development of a service system that is responsive to the needs of people with acquired brain injury;
  • Advocate to influence outcomes in public policy to ensure optimal results for people living with or affected by ABI
  • Ensure people providing services to people living with or affected by brain injury have access to the information and training they require to work effectively;
  • Promote community awareness and understanding of acquired brain injury, in terms of both prevention and the impact of ABI on the lives of individuals, families and the broader community; and
  • Build an effective, sustainable organisation including the need to diversify our funding base and secure operational funding that is commensurate with agreed strategic objectives.
