Become a member
Thank you for taking time to consider becoming a member of Spinal Cord Injuries Australia (SCIA).
SCIA was founded in 1967 by a small group of people with a spinal cord injury who wanted to retain their independence and voice their frustrations concerning the obstacles they faced in society. Over forty years later, we are proud to continue representing the needs of those who are affected by such a traumatic injury. While the situation facing people with a spinal cord injury has greatly improved, there is still a long way to go.
SCIA strives to get people back on track as soon as possible after acquiring a spinal cord injury and works tirelessly for improvements in care, access and appropriate community development. Without the support of our members this would not be possible.
We want our members to recognise the role they play in assisting us to make vital changes to support people with a spinal cord injury. We continue to be a member based organisation and we value the input and contribution made by our members, without which we would be limited in the results we can achieve.
We also want our members to be rewarded for their commitment to us and as such, as well as receiving our quarterly magazine Accord, we are constantly working on ways to increase the value of our membership. We are currently providing a range of services that are available exclusively to our members and hope to expand on this list over time.
Ongoing support from our members is vital in ensuring our services remain relevant to the people who need them so please join today so that we can continue the hard and rewarding work undertaken by that small group in 1967 and all those who have followed.
