Spinal Life Australia

In Australia one person every day sustains a traumatic and life-changing spinal cord injury. It can happen to anyone at any time, from a motor vehicle accident to something as simple as a slip or fall at home.

A spinal cord injury can mean a loss of mobility and feeling, as well as the inability to regulate other bodily functions such as circulation, breathing, and personal care. It’s more than just using a wheelchair, and learning to adapt can be an ongoing process.

At Spinal Life Australia we understand physical disability, and the challenges families must cope with on a daily basis. That’s why we’ve developed a range of specialist services and resources that are tailored to each individual, to support them in achieving their goals.

We are there from the time a person is first injured, providing useful experience, advice and guidance through our Peer Support program. That support continues throughout a person’s journey from hospital to home, and beyond.

With more than 55 years of experience, we have a strong history of working in partnership with individuals because we believe that everyone deserves to make decisions and choices about their life in a way that is meaningful to them.

Our specialist therapies, support, employment and advocacy services are nationally recognised for bringing possibility back into people’s lives.

We are committed to being there throughout a person’s lifetime, ensuring they can live independently, return to work, maintain social networks and live a fulfilling life.

A gift in your Will is an investment in the lives of ordinary Aussies, many of who are injured going about their daily activities. It allows us to plan for the future and maximise the impact we can make.

It can cost more than $9 million to support someone after their injury. Unfortunately, there is rarely enough funding to meet an individual’s needs, meaning gaps in service provision, or isolation from the community.

Through your gift you will be helping cover gaps in funding and provide solutions to thousands of Australians when they need it most.

Your gift affords someone the promise of a future and the opportunity to be normal again.

Our team is dedicated to creating an accessible world, where anyone affected by Spinal Injury or physical disability can lead a life of quality.

We’d love for you to join our team with a gift in your Will!
