About 90 people sustain spinal cord injuries in Queensland each year – that’s one person every four days.
Your donation will help Spinal Life Australia continue to support people with spinal cord damage and other physical disabilities to live an accessible, equitable and empowered life.
While I love living in Australia, my experiences since sustaining a spinal cord injury at the age of 28 have taught me we still have a long way to go until our communities are truly inclusive and accessible for all.
This is why I’m proud to be part of an organisation working towards a better future for people with spinal cord damage and other physical disabilities.
In 2019, I joined Spinal Life Australia’s Advocacy team to help the organisation advocate for more inclusive and accessible communities through improving access to health, transport, tourism, accommodation, employment, research and more.
One of my biggest projects to date has been assisting with bringing the Accessible Australia app to life, a free online resource that will help Australians better identify accessible destinations in their community – click here to learn more.
Your support will help progress advocacy projects like Accessible Australia for the benefit of all Australians and help create a more accessible future for people like me.
