Welcome to your Forum
Spinal Cord Injuries Australia is a for-purpose organisation working for people living with spinal cord injury (SCI) and other physical disabilities.
We provide a range of services to support people living with SCI, including Peer and Family Support, individual and systemic advocacy, NDIS support services and NeuroMoves, our specialist exercise rehabilitation program.
If you are living with SCI or any other physical disability, or care about somebody who does, this Forum is a safe space for you to connect with others who share similar experiences.
You can browse through a range of topics, including the National Disability Insurance Scheme, sexual health and fertility, employment, pain management and much more.
Why not introduce yourself to the community to get started?
