Advice to your younger self from Kate
SCIA and Youthsafe have partnered to prevent unintentional injury of young people, by offering advice and support.
In the second instalment of Advice for a Younger Generation, SCIA’s Peer and Family Support team member Kate, gives the advice that she wishes she had when she was younger.
People between the ages of 15 – 25 are at greater risk of being hurt or dying as a result of an unintentional injury.
Our partner, Youthsafe, understands the way young people think and the unique characteristics that can increase this risk. They have a team of skilled health and education professionals to create innovative, evidence-based solutions to address youth safety.
SCIA CEO features in The CEO Magazine
Spinal Cord Injuries Australia’s (SCIA) CEO Dianne Lucas was featured in The CEO Magazine to talk about the challenge of convincing society to think outside of the false narratives that have been spun about disability, from their personality, outlook and their abilities.
For Dianne Lucas, CEO of Spinal Cord Injuries Australia (SCIA), it’s fundamental to the important work being done in the sector to educate individuals and companies on attitudes to people living with disability. “The biggest misconception we face is that what has happened to a particular individual is more than just an injury, that something else about them has changed,” she explains. “In the vast majority of cases, people can still do what they did before in every way, apart from aspects of getting around. People’s capabilities haven’t changed – they’re still the same person, able to do real work and participate in society the same way the rest of us can.”
