Traumatic Brain Injury and Homelessness

21 Aug 2020

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is common among people who experience homelessness. Through our Grants to End Homelessness program, we funded a project with Swinburne University to provide resources to help frontline workers better support people experiencing homelessness with a history of brain injury.

Dr Jessica Mackelprang and her team have surveyed more than 100 frontline service staff across Australia to ascertain their current knowledge of TBI and their training needs.

A Fact Sheet has been developed for frontline service workers and a training module is in development.
