Spinal Injuries Awareness Week 2013
Spinal Injuries Awareness Week
Spinal Injuries Awareness Week, held from 10 – 17 November 2013, is a national campaign highlighting spinal cord injury in the community.
The week is relevant not only to people living with spinal cord injuries, their families and friends, but also the broader community, venues and businesses in general.
Spinal Injuries Awareness Week is a national campaign focusing on the ability to rebuild lives after a devastating injury. During this week, spinal injury organisations around Australia are working together to highlight the common barriers that prevent social inclusion, what it means to have a spinal cord injury and still contribute to community life as well as what we can all do to prevent one.
16-17 November 2013
Now in its ninth year, Accessibility Weekend sees attractions across Victoria open their doors for free to people with a physical disability who use a wheelchair and their carer. Accessibility Weekend is a celebration of the importance of access and inclusion.
