This year’s Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week will take place from 7-13 September, and we’re highlighting an important message: Accessibility equals opportunity.
Throughout the week, we’ll be sharing stories from our members on what accessibility means to them and improvements that can be made.
It’s not just about physically being able to access venues and services – it’s about ensuring all venues and services provide comprehensive, accurate accessibility information that can be found quickly and easily.
By improving accessibility in Australia, we provide people with spinal cord damage and other physical disabilities a greater opportunity to participate and contribute to their local communities.
Ensuring accessibility information is readily available also empowers people to make informed decisions about the places they visit.
As businesses and tourism destinations recover from the impact of COVID-19, it’s more important than ever to provide people with spinal cord damage the opportunity to participate in and contribute to their local communities.
When a community is accessible, everybody wins.
