What is SCIAW?
Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week (SCIAW) is a national campaign highlighting spinal cord injury in the community. SCIAW is relevant not only to people living with spinal cord injuries, their families and friends; but the broader community, venues and businesses.
For Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week in 2019 we are raising awareness about what it means to have a spinal cord injury – and that people who have a spinal cord injury are involved in all aspects of life and are contributing to the community in so many different ways.
During SCIAW from the 2 - 8 September, spinal injury organisations around Australia are also working together to highlight the common barriers that prevent social inclusion, what it means to have a spinal cord injury and what we can do to prevent new cases of spinal cord injury in Australia.
