We are proudly supporting the research of Dr Andrew Gardner and the Hunter Medical Research Institute, to develop a reliable and validated assessment tool to improve the diagnosis of sports concussion.
In partnership with the Australian Australian Rugby Foundation and the Ian Tucker Foundation, we supported Rugby Australia to implement the 'Blue Card' concussion awareness tool across all levels of rugby union in Australia. The card gives referees a tool to remove players who show signs of concussion from the field. The ‘Blue Card’ was piloted at Toothy Ten’s in 2017 before being rolled out nationally in 2018.
We supported the NSW Positive Rugby Foundation and Batyr to deliver the the 'Get Talkin’ Tour' to communities in regional NSW. The program uses rugby as a vehicle to start important conversations around mental ill-health and promote positive wellbeing in local rugby clubs.
