What your donation can do for people with disabilities
- Deliver psychology and counselling to a young person who has a newly acquired spinal cord injury and is impacted by an uncertain future and at great risk of self-harm.
- Help us purchase a lifting machine so a mother with two young children who have disabilities can safely move them.
- Provide SpinChat sessions to at risk teenagers, through young people with a spinal cord injury visiting schools to deliver their own personal account of the need to minimise at risk behaviour.
- Enable a free of charge short holiday for someone with a severe disability who has not been away for more than 30 years and never seen the Great Ocean Road.
- Help us fund respite staff to step in so a full time carer can have a few hours break while their loved one with a disability is in hospital.
- Provide additional care hours so a person with a severe disability can shower daily.
