The Australian Spinal Injury Alliance, representing eight of Australia’s state-based spinal cord injury organisations, was established to provide a national voice for the 15,000 Australians who have sustained a spinal cord injury.
The eight organisations which make up the Alliance are AQA Victoria Ltd (AQA), Independence Australia, the ParaQuad Association of Tasmania Inc, ParaQuad NSW, PARAQUAD SA, Spinal Cord Injuries Australia, Spinal Life Australia and Spine & Limb Foundation (WA).
Our role is to work collectively to represent, at a national level, the interests of all Australians who have sustained a spinal cord injury via five key priorities:
- Government liaison
- Injury prevention
- Information sharing and
- Awareness raising.
Our goal is to deliver a National Spinal Cord Injury Strategy that will lay the foundation for better outcomes, both social and economic, for all Australians who have sustained a spinal cord injury.
Individuals across our collective organisations have collated the information you will find on this website. If you have any questions about anything you see or read here, reach out to us via social media or you can find contact details by clicking here.
