About The National Assistance Card

The Commonwealth Government has funded the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania (BIAT) for a project to expand its brain injury identification card program.

The Project is The National Assistance Card Service.

The National Assistance Card will be available to all people in Australia living with brain injury. The Card will also be trialled for people with autism, intellectual disability and epilepsy who live in Tasmania.

The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania hope that, in the future, the National Assistance Card will be available to all Australian's living with disability and/or health conditions.

People living with brain injury will be able to apply for a National Assistance Card from mid-October 2021.

If you are interested in applying for a Card and/or would like more information, please fill in our Expression of Interest Form .
