About the project
Our flagship Healthy Living Centre in Cairns will be the first of its kind in Queensland and regional Australia, offering short-term accessible accommodation, allied health services, a rehabilitation gym, community café and more.
The project is made possible with funding from the Australian Government’s Building Better Regions Fund, which provides grants for projects that will create jobs, drive economic growth and build stronger regional communities.
The Centre has been developed in response to feedback from our members, and our mission to enable solutions for people with spinal cord damage to live an accessible, equitable and empowered life.
The project is part of our commitment to bringing specialist services closer to home, reducing the need for people to travel and giving them access to support where and when they choose.
The short-term accommodation will be available for residents and visitors holidaying in the region, as well as people who are transitioning home from hospital.
The Spinal Life Healthy Living Centre is located at 2-4 Smith St, North Cairns, close to the Esplanade, Cairns Hospital and other health services.
