Read the June issue of FORWARD now!











Welcome to the redesigned issue of FORWARD!  We are very excited to reveal the new look and editorial structure and hope you enjoy reading the magazine just as much as we have putting it together. 

As of the June issue, you will be able to read about a wide variety of topics written by SCI people, healthcare and legal professionals, SCI researchers and many others from the SCI community.  By creating diversity in subject areas we can cater for the different interests of the magazine’s readers.

As you will see, there are plenty of ways in which you can provide feedback and comment on the different articles within the magazine.  Please use SIA’s different communication channels to let us know what you think about the new format, but to also share your stories and experiences with us.  FORWARD has been redesigned to give you ownership of the magazine and we would like to see more contributions from subscribers in future issues.

To kick off the new editorial structure, this issue brings you articles on Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, osteoporosis, Transverse Myelitis, legal advice about returning to work and protecting your future care and assets, online dating, growing up as a child with an SCI, volunteering and much, much more.  We told you it would be diverse!

If the June issue of FORWARD inspires you to write an article for a future edition of the magazine, contact the editor, Breda, at

Enjoy your new magazine!
