We have a proud history of supporting our members and clients from offices based in Brisbane, Townsville and Cairns.
Through your feedback, we know how important it is for you to be able to access services close to home, and meet our team face-to-face.
We are committed to improving supports and community connections for people with spinal cord damage and related physical disabilities, particularly with the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
To achieve this goal, we are opening our doors in more places and creating Spinal Life Healthy Living Centres in major regional locations, beginning with Cairns. To read more about the Spinal Life Healthy Living Centre in Cairns, click here.
We are also improving our services in key areas, through new offices in Perth, Bundaberg and Rockhampton.
In addition, we have launched our member services in Western Australia, after receiving feedback from residents about the need for more opportunities to connect with our team, and each other.
Our Spinal Life Networks in these regions are also growing, creating more opportunities for you to engage with your peers and advocate on issues that matter most to you.
Read more about our other new locations:
In mid-2018, Spinal Life Australia expanded their member services to Perth, providing people in the region with spinal cord damage or related physical disability a chance to connect with others and share their experiences.
After a series of NDIS information sessions in Western Australia, we noticed a valuable opportunity to further connect with Perth’s spinal cord damage community and provide useful advocacy and community connection efforts.
We currently have an office space at Rebound WA in Ashbury Crescent and have employed a dedicated member liaison officer in the region.
To help us stay connected, we have also established a Community Reference Group to inform the development of our services in the areas and identify potential opportunities for growth.
Our Bundaberg office is now open, with an Occupational Therapist providing a range of allied health services.
The new office also has space for training and Member Network meetings and will allow clients and members to better engage and network with other people with spinal cord damage, as well as the Spinal Life team.
The office is located at 290 Bourbong Street, and is currently open by appointment.
Our Rockhampton office is now open, connecting residents with our Personal Support and Home Care Services through an onsite Client Service Officer.
The team includes an Occupational Therapist to provide valuable allied health assistance, while there will also be a small space that can be used for member meetings, as well as for staff training and development.
The office is located in a new fitness and wellness centre at the corner of Kent and Archer streets, and is open by appointment.
