Forward Magazine

SIA’s bi-monthly FORWARD magazine provides the SCI community with a wealth of information on topics including health, daily living, employment, relationships, sport, travel, families and friends, and much more.

Our members have real ownership of the magazine, with most of the articles written by SCI people. Their input is invaluable and provides support to newly-injured people, as well as those with a long-term injury.
