Brain Injury Australia
Putney, New South Wales, Australia
Nick Rushworth is the Executive Officer of Brain Injury Australia - the nation's peak body for the over 700,000 people with a brain injury, their families and carers. In 1996, Nick sustained a severe Traumatic Brain Injury as a result of a bicycle accident. Before joining Brain Injury Australia, Nick worked for the Northern Territory Government - the administrative authority for the central and northern regions of Australia - setting up their new Office of Disability. Alongside representing people with a brain injury on a variety of advisory and research steering committees – including the recently announced $50 million Australian Government's “Mission in Traumatic Brain Injury” – Nick is also an ambassador for both the National Organisation for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders and the Queensland Brain Institute’s concussion research. Between 2017 and 2019, Nick facilitated a “Community of Practice” in brain injury for the National Disability Insurance Agency - which administers the Australian Government’s new scheme for funding the costs associated with disability.
