Out now - Autumn issue of Forward

Anyone feeling that shift in the seasons? Cooler weather, leaves starting to curl and crunch, cravings for pumpkin lattes? Autumn is on its way, and we’re delighted to share our new look Forward magazine with you.

You can expect a bigger, brighter, more user-friendly magazine with more space to dig into and feature the things that are important to you.

We’ve scooped exclusive interviews with some of the SCI stars of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics and we hope you’ll find their personal stories as riveting as we did.

You’ll find thought-provoking articles about the latest, cutting-edge research into SCI issues including how the GMove Suit – a wearable compression suit is benefiting SCI people.

Can self-driving cars offer greater independence for SCI people? We delve into whether this incredible technology can really help improve the lives of those with disabilities.

We learn about the newly established Academy for Disabled Journalists which helps offer meaningful pathways to employment for disabled people.

Our campaigns team unpack the government’s National Disability Strategy and explore its impact on the lives of SCI people.

Meanwhile, our SCI nurse specialists have launched their newest course on pressure sores. They discuss why education on this area of healthcare – which costs the NHS £4bn annually – is so important.

Wanting to get ahead with festive planning? We’re showcasing our gorgeous Christmas cards, including two specially designed for us by SCI artists whose personal stories of how art has impacted their lives are so powerful, we had to share them with you.

And wait! There’s more. Read Forward’s autumn issue for:

  • mouth-watering autumnal recipes from foodie favourites the 2SCI Chefs
  • virtual adaptive workouts for every level in a handy weekly calendar
  • Martin’s Mountain and other fundraising updates
  • brilliant comedy writing
