About the event
The Spinal Injuries Association is the peak body for people with a spinal cord injury in Queensland. The Association was formed in 1960 'to provide occupational amenities, assistance and accommodation for people with paraplegia or quadriplegia'. Since that time, the Association has evolved into an organisation that provides a range of services across Queensland for people with a spinal cord injury; predominantly those with paraplegia, quadriplegia and the late effects of polio. The Association helps people rebuild their lives; advocates for greater independence, equity and choice; and presents a state-wide injury prevention program to school students.
Working co-operatively with the community, business and government, the Association represents more than 1,500 members state wide and is widely respected for its specialist knowledge of the needs of people with a spinal cord injury. Its advice is sought by individuals, business and government at all levels. The Association is a not-for-profit, membership-based organisation. It is registered as an incorporated Association and is recognised by Government as a Charity and public benevolent institution.
