We’re excited to launch our new network approach to reach and support more spinal cord injured (SCI) people with more and better services and support nationally, regionally and online.

We’re creating the best network possible to serve, support and fight for every aspect of what each person living with SCI would define as a fulfilled life.

This means establishing a network of trusted partners, developing a new online space for easy access to the appropriate people and partners, and re-structuring our outreach region-by-region. We’re using the headings of body, mind, life and livelihoods as a guide. Because a fulfilled life is not just about bowel management, but retaining a job, having children, getting to a shop, being safe from coronavirus, etc.

So, to kick off our new network approach, we’re excited to introduce the first of our Trusted Legal Partners. They are some of our longest-standing supporters over the years, showing real commitment to our work through investing in SIA, volunteering, and fundraising. All our legal partners are specialists with exemplary legal expertise and are committed to our vision of a fulfilled life for everyone with an SCI.
