Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week 2023

Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week (SCIAW) is an important awareness week for people living with spinal cord injury (SCI), rehabilitation service providers, industry, and the wider community. It is a time to get informed about the challenges people with SCI face in daily life, and the often simple actions that you can take towards inclusion and ensuring better access for the 4.4 million people living with disability in Australia. 

This year, the focus is on employment and the workforce, with the theme of #SCIAW23 being Enable your business: employ people with disability.
