International Wheelchair Day 2024

“Without NIISQ’s support I’m sure I wouldn’t be as far ahead with my life and as happy as I am because of how much help and ongoing support I receive from them.” — Declan, NIISQ participant. 

International Wheelchair Day (1 March) is an important reminder for us to celebrate wheelchair users and the positive impact a wheelchair has on their lives. Today is also an opportunity to thank and acknowledge the millions of people around the world who develop technological advances for wheelchairs and also thank the people who provide care and support to wheelchair users.  

We are proud to have supported 120 NIISQ participants with spinal cord injuries to date.

Together, we can make the world more accessible for people of all abilities.
