New episodes of Have The Nerve playing now!
How much do you know about continence and spinal cord injury (SCI)?
For many people, a spinal cord injury isn't just a loss of limb mobility - it can also affect the bladder and the bowel.
Learn over two episodes about the impact a spinal cord injury can have when it comes to continence with Edwina Spooner from Coloplast.
Building Better Homes Campaign Update
Earlier this year, SCIA partnered with 35 other peak disability bodies and agencies to create the Building Better Homes Campaign working to secure long-term reform for mandatory accessibility standards within the National Building Code.
Yesterday it was announced that, because of the overwhelming support for building code changes, commonwealth, state and territory Building Ministers have agreed to include mandatory minimum accessibility standards within the National Construction Code - to Silver Level.
From September 2022, all new houses will be built to this new standard. If you like to know more about this campaign click the following:
The second episode of Have The Nerve is out!
Can having a disability change you?
The SCIA Peer and Family Support team talk about their lived experiences and the reality of living with a spinal cord injury.
Hear from Rob, Dan and Jess about what is truly important, lessons they’ve learnt along the way like patience, advocating for themselves, independence and dealing with mental health.
Let’s put disability into perspective; changing mindsets, learning from other people, engaging in support and services available and not forget about how important mental health is.
Spinal cord injury isn’t just doom and gloom, it’s about living your best life and focussing on what brings you joy.
