Be Part of the Solution
In 2018, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) researchers, clinical experts and major advocacy groups from across Australia united to develop a large-scale national plan to improve the lives of people following a TBI.
The national plan was initially costed at $100 million over 5 years. In March 2019 funding of $50 million over 10 years was announced by the Federal Government as the Mission for TBI. In order to keep in step with, support and enhance the work of the Mission over the 10 years of Commonwealth funding and beyond; the timeline of the initiative as a whole must be similarly expanded.
The expansion of the timeline and the corresponding increase in scope and scale of the program will generate an increase in costs, such that a total of $150 million over 10 years will likely be required to meet the extended goals.
To enable the full benefit of this bold and innovative national plan, Connectivity is seeking to establish close and long-term relationships with funding organisations.
This vital funding will be used for activities of Connectivity that will promote the prevention and control of the disease and disease processes that occur following TBI. Connectivity will connect researchers with the people they are trying to help and will provide relevant and evidence-based information to people with TBI, carers and clinicians.
Research funding will be disseminated as recommended by the Expert Committee and approved by the independent Board of Directors.
