We’re holding a series of member lunches across Queensland to mark Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week (4 – 10 September) and Disability Action Week (10 – 16 September).
This national week is an initiative of the Australian Spinal Injury Alliance, which represents eight of the country’s largest spinal cord injury organisations.
This year’s theme is “I can”, challenging perceptions of what it means to have a spinal cord injury.
Member lunches will be held in:
- Cairns – Tuesday, 5 September
- Rockhampton – Thursday, 7 September
- Childers – Friday, 8 September
- Gold Coast – Monday, 11 September
- Brisbane – Wednesday, 13 September
