Welcome to the February edition of forward!
This edition of forward launches our 40th Anniversary year and the celebrations and activities that start this month and continue throughout 2014. You will find details of special 40th Anniversary merchandise, a Quiz covering the past 40 years and a commitment by SIA to find 40 work placement opportunities for spinal cord injured people this year.
As always in February, as people’s thoughts turn to holidays and travel, we are pleased to publish the experiences of other forward readers who have tried something different: five-weeks sailing on the Lord Nelson; driving from Gibraltar to Germany via Paris; Japan; Cyprus and cruising to the Caribbean. And if none of that appeals to you, we have details of two accessible rural retreats, one in Scotland and the other in Cornwall.
From the SIA Academy are details of forthcoming training courses in 2014 and there is a special feature on Transverse Myelitis, explaining what the condition is and where you can go for help.
All this, alongside our regular features for Walkers and Parents, your questions answered by our experts and your letters to us makes this a bumper read to start the year.
