Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week is from 2 – 8 September to raise awareness of the needs of people with spinal cord injuries.

This national week is an initiative of the Australian Spinal Injury Alliance, which represents eight of the country’s largest spinal cord injury support organisations including SCIA.

This year’s theme is ‘NDIS – Planning for Success’, highlighting the expertise of our spinal cord injury associations and how organisations like SCIA help the disability community prepare for and plan for success with their NDIS plans.

The week coincides with World Spinal Cord Injury Day, on 5 September, which is an initiative of the International Spinal Cord Society to increase awareness of injury prevention and an inclusive life for people with a spinal cord injury.
