Are you a person with lived experience of SCI or other physical disability and would like to support another person who is going through the same or similar experience?
You could be ParaQuad Tasmania’s next volunteer in the Propel SCI Peer Coaching program.

· Education and employment
· Information and resources
· Advocacy and support in resolving concerns
Propel Peer Coaches build capacity through providing empathetic and qualified coaching support in:
