Talking to someone with a similar level of injury or life situation with real lived experience of some of the issues of life with SCI is invaluable.
Our What's Out There (WOT) day expos showcase the possibilities and diversity of life with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) in the community through people's real lived experiences.
Seeking information? We provide free and impartial information on all matters relating to life with SCI - by phone, email, social media or face-to-face.
Written and compiled by people with lived experience of SCI and other complex disabilities, NewsLink contains news, information and articles of interest to those living with disability, as well as community ads for second-hand items of equipment.
We offer short courses targeted specifically for people with SCI and their families to help build confidence, resilience and self-efficacy to take control of their lives and create a future of their choosing for themselves.
Pathways to Employment post-SCI is a project that was launched by Spire in late 2015 that focuses on finding one’s way to meaningful and fulfilling activity, whether it is work, volunteering, study or increased community participation in a person’s life post spinal cord injury (SCI).
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of providing support for Australians with a disability. It aims to help people with a disability achieve their goals and improve their quality of life by funding the necessary supports and services. We're continuously developing information, supports and services resourced by the lived experience of SCI and the NDIS.
NDIS Support Coordination helps you build your capacity to implement your plan, connect with services and achieve your plan goals.
Spire has a team of trained and experienced volunteers and paid staff who provide general peer-support, leveraging from a pool of shared lived experience of spinal cord injury (SCI). Delivered in a similar format, peer-coaching is a natural extension which aims to provide lived-experience support and guidance around setting and moving towards individual goals and outcomes in specific areas of life with SCI, including health and employment.
