WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
Raise life-changing funds
A spinal cord injury changes your life in an instant. Paralysis causes loss of limb function, and multiple secondary health issues – respiratory, bowel and bladder, pressure injuries, pain, spasms, loss of sexual function, and more. People living with spinal cord injury experience higher hospital admissions, more mental health challenges, lower employment and reduced life expectancy.
15,000 Australians live with spinal cord injury; with another injured every day. It impacts particularly on young people, in the prime of life. The estimated care and economic cost to Australian economy is $2 billion annually.
SCIA is there for the entire journey; from the spinal rehabilitation units, to life back home and learning to live again. We provide a range of practical support services, based on lived experience. These include Peer Support, Exercise, Advocacy, Information, NDIS Support, Accommodation and Employment.
But. We need your help.
