As part of our commitment to raising awareness about brain injury across Australia, the National Assistance Card Service have planned a series of initiatives to engage our cardholders, brain injury organisations and the wider community as part of Brain Injury Awareness Week.
One of our key initiatives is the update of the Helpful Links area on our website, focusing specifically on brain injury resources.
We believe that access to the right information is crucial for understanding and managing brain injury. Brain injury services and resources will be promoted across our social media platforms, including Facebook and LinkedIn, throughout the week.
We are also excited to promote the events, workshops, and other activities organised by brain injury organisations from across Australia during Brain Injury Awareness Week.
We encourage our cardholders and the wider community to participate in these events and access these resources to gain a deeper understanding of brain injury.
We believe that promoting this information aligns strongly with the aims of the National Assistance Card Service. Your involvement can make a significant difference in raising awareness and understanding of brain injury in the community.'

If you are holding an event or awareness raising activity during Brain Injury Awareness Week, or know of an important brain injury organisation or resource, please let us know via Email (email@example.com) or our Contact form so we can promote it.
We encourage cardholders, brain injury organisations and the wider community to support the campaign by sharing information about the National Assistance Card.
As a valuable communication tool for people living with brain injury across Australia, the National Assistance Card can help make a difference for people in their day to day lives, not only in emergency situations.
Please see below for shareable resources and suggested wording that you can use on social media to help raise awareness of brain injury and the Card.
You can find more resources on the Digital Library page of our website, that can be used to help spread the word.
Cardholders and their family members, and organisations, services and businesses are also invited to share their experiences of the National Assistance Card. We believe that these testimonials provide valuable insights and experiences that can help others learn more about the National Assistance Card.
You can submit your testimonial through our new online form at this link.
Finally, we are promoting and encouraging organisations, services and businesses to display our new initiative, the Awareness Badge, on their website or social media platforms to show their recognition and support of the National Assistance Card.
Displaying the badge indicates that your staff know how to respond when shown a Card, giving National Assistance Card holders confidence when communicating with your business or organisation.
We provide a recommended best practices guide to help you share the badge and raise awareness of the card.
We look forward to a successful Brain Injury Awareness Week and thank everyone for their support.

The National Assistance Card is a personalised card to assist people with disability and health conditions in the community. The Card can be used in everyday and emergency situations to help cardholders communicate their unique areas of difficulty and the assistance they may need. The Card can: give cardholders greater independence and assist them to feel more confident in everyday situations; provide peace of mind for families and carers; enhance community understanding of disability and health conditions; and support positive community interaction with cardholders.
The Card is available to all people in Australia living with brain injury.
In Tasmania the Card is being trialled with the autistic community.
