We are run by and for people with SCI – 42% of our staff have a disability and the majority of our Board have SCI.

  • Offering a one-stop-shop for information on services, advice and support available
  • Sharing the lived experience of having an SCI through peer support
  • Influencing social change on a systemic and individual level
  • Awarding grants for equipment, services or activities that enhance independence or respond to an emergency situation
  • Providing care on a one-off, temporary or emergency basis
  • Supporting people back into employment, education or training
  • Running an Australian Disability Enterprise that employs people with disability and pays  full award wages
