Peer & Family Support in Canberra
Our ACT Peer & Family Support Coordinator, Pat, has over 30 years of experience. He was born with spina bifida and got experience working in the assistive technology industry. We aim to assist you with living with a spinal cord injury in Canberra and the surrounding regions. No matter whether it is wheelchair skills, assistance with where to turn for other services, advice on assistive technology, health-related issues (from a non-clinical, lived experience point of view), or just a general chat about life with a spinal cord injury.
We also hold social events throughout the year so you can meet with other people in a similar situation.
