Networking via Facebook

Peer Support has a very active private Facebook group where participants discuss a wide range of issues such as travel, health, sex, leisure pursuits and equipment.

This is a fantastic forum to talk to other people with spinal cord injuries in a confidential environment. Simply visit this page or search Facebook for ‘Peer Support – Spinal Injuries Australia’ and request to be invited to the group.
