Spinal Injury Awareness Week 2022
46% of spinal cord injuries are caused be car accidents
30% of spinal cord injuries happen to people in the 15-24 year age group

This week we are promoting Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week 4-10 September. The theme this year is Good Access = Good Business, with a particular focus on creating more accessible business and tourism spaces.

Did you know that almost 4 million Australians live with a disability? For business owners, if you aren’t offering accessibility you are missing out on a whopping 18% more business!

Our friends at Spinal Life Australia have developed some awesome free resources including a quick way to check your business’ accessibility rating and a useful Accessibility Toolkit.
