Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week 2020

Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week is a national initiative of the Australian Spinal Injury Alliance (ASIA), representing eight of the country's leading spinal cord injury organisations.

During this week in September, we seek to highlight current issues impacting people living with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), with each year having a theme around a particular issue or campaign.

The PQSA focus for 2020 is Slips, Trips & Falls Awareness and Prevention. You may have heard our campaign on Nova and 5AA to reach more people in the community about hazards around the home, which can cause Spinal Cord Injury.

We have an information sheet here with some useful hints and tips about making your home safer.


Peter Stewart, PQSA CEO and Vicky Machen, Peer Support Advocate were interviewed on 5AA shining a light on the major causes of spinal cord injury - trips and falls.
