Information and support
The networks enable people to meet their peers for the purpose of information and support. Members gather regularly and often have guest speakers who address a wide variety of topics. The networks also engage in advocacy and networking with the wider community to promote inclusive communities.
The networks provide an opportunity for people throughout Queensland to share information and experiences, advocate for change and raise issues that impact on their daily lives.
We facilitate support networks for spinal injuries, post-polio and transverse myelitis.
