Description

Founded in 1986, Brain Injury Australia is the gateway to information and nationwide referral for optimising the social and economic participation of the over 700,000 Australians living with a brain injury, their families and carers. Brain Injury Australia also drives multi-year public education campaigns devoted to: the leading cause of death and disability in children who have been abused, inflicted traumatic brain injury (sometimes called “shaken baby syndrome”); concussion in sport; the leading cause of head injury, falls - due to an ageing population; people with a brain injury in the criminal justice system (as many as 80 per cent of Australia's adult prisoners report brain injury); and women, family violence and traumatic brain injury.
