Welcome to the April edition of forward!
A recent reader’s survey highlighted that many of you are interested in fashion, body image and what to wear. So, that’s what the April edition is focussing on. We have articles on specialist clothing outlets, on the individual fashion styles of other forward readers and how SCI Centres are acknowledging the importance of having a good self-image as an aid to rehabilitation. There are some handy tips and some hilarious accounts of the fashion challenges faced by SCI people!
The importance of SIA’s campaigning work to get district general hospitals to liaise with SCI Centres over the admission of paralysed people is highlighted in three dreadful tales from members: two on pressure sore treatment and one with a UTI. There are some useful warnings for other readers.
The regular letters pages, questions and answers, fundraising and campaigning news is augmented by a chart of the new Benefit Rates for 2013-14.
Add to this a film review, details of SIA’s new Academy training programme for 2013 and details of how you can train to be a Fitness Instructor and you will find this a bumper issue with lots to read.
