Women with SCI Network

The Women with SCI Network group aims to create a comfortable, open and confidential space that encourages everyone to share ideas and experiences; with a vision of connecting and supporting women living with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) and similar complex physical disabilities. The group started in December 2017, after surveying women living with SCI across Victoria, for their interests and preferences of what they would want to see in a group specifically for women.  

The group is engaged in setting their own agendas and is always open and interested in welcoming new members so please feel free to contact us if you would like to join, attend a meeting or learn more about it. You can browse through the articles below to follow the activities of the group which range from hosting guest speakers on topics such as health and wellbeing and sexual health, activities, group discussions and social outings.
