Spinal Home Help is an agent and advocate for the spinal injuries community of Queensland. We facilitate programs, services and workshops as well as information and support, from the time that people are first admitted to hospital after their injury, through to their discharge from rehabilitation and beyond. Our organisation was founded by people with spinal injury and our families, that legacy of of lived experience, mutual trust and self-determination still lives on, as our organisation continues to be run by people with spinal injury. Our first hand experience of this life change enables us to tailor our programs and services to the client and to meet needs that may have been overlooked. We are dedicated to ensuring that that no person with a spinal injury or condition, or their families and loved ones, ever feel isolated or disengaged from their communities again. Spinal Home Help's mission is never to accept what we are told will not change, but rather to make change when it becomes unacceptable for people with spinal cord injury and their families.
