Our Beginning

One resource for all Brain Injury enquiries:

Initially the project was to provide a resource that people could have when they had questions or enquiries about Brain Injury. Hence the development of the "Let's Talk About Brain Injury" booklet, a comprehensive and practical guide to support people impacted by Brain Injury.


But then there were more questions than answers:

After much discussion it was apparent that there were more questions that needed to be answered and were to stand alone from the already created information booklet. This gave forth the creation of the "Topic Cards". Small summary cards with topics that were vital to people effected by Brain Injury.


A comprehensive one stop shop:

Moving forward and in addition to the resources created, the "Brain Injury Assist" website was formulated to be a major resource for Victoria, Tasmania and other Australian states.

The websites gives access to topic cards, videos, assistance via email and a dedicated 1800 help number.
