Become a member

Spinal Cord Injuries Australia (SCIA) is a member based organisation and we value the input and contributions of our members. Our 50 year history has been created by and for people with spinal cord injury (SCI) and we are proud of the achievements of our members in this time, and proud of the changes we have seen in the community as a result.

Working together we believe we can facilitate change and get closer to our vision of a society without barriers for people with SCI.

Membership for people with a disability and their immediate family and carers is free. Membership will be auto-renewed for each person on their membership anniversary date1.

For others, such as professionals in the sector, membership remains $10 per year. These members will be contacted before their membership anniversary date to renew. We are in the process of creating some new membership packages for corporates and organisations so we will keep you updated as we develop these.
