Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week is recognised every year in early September.
To highlight this week in 2022 we bring you stories and information about people living with SCI, and resources that might be helpful.
Katherine Reed (pictured left with her husband Tim), who farms and is Mum to two boys (just to name a couple of things) updates us on where here life is at now, 14 years after her Spinal Cord Injury. Read the story here.
Alysse Gavlik is passionate about helping people with disability find secure paid employment.
“It’s about financial security and self-worth. Everyone wants to be valued equally.” Read the full article here – it includes suggestions on how to talk to potential employers about a disability.
And because it also happens to be Women’s Health Week, we chat to Georgie Gott about the benefits she experiences from regular exercise – including via our Wheelchair Sports program. Learn more here.
