We provide a range of services, including information and referral, specialist supports, National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) services, advocacy, housing and targeted research activities. Synapse promotes quality of life, self-determination and choice. Our mission is to ensure the rights of people impacted by brain injury, by connecting knowledge, policy, services and systems.
The State Lead - W.A. role encompasses both strategic and operational responsibilities, and will have overall responsibility for leading Synapse’s engagement within a W.A. context, including contribution to national initiatives.
