Your Support Network


During this time we have been building a network of partners to bring you all the support and advice you need.   Most recently:

Daily virtual cafes Monday to Friday at 3pm.


  • Monday and Wednesday we will be holding Drop-In Cafes.  Come along listen to our guest speaker and chat with our SCI Nurse Specialists, Advocacy and Support Network teams – they will be happy to help you with any questions you wish to ask them.
