Welcome to the Spire Community Blog. This is a place for our community to connect by sharing views and experiences, by finding common ground, or by discussing differences.
Content will range from short stories with a black humour element, to serious articles with sources cited.
Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) may, or may not, take centre stage. This is about life in its entirety and sometimes the SCI and the effects it has on our life is our main focus, and sometimes it’s not even in view.
Our bloggers are community members, who all live with a SCI, whether it is their own, or a family member’s.
You are invited to comment on the posts and we also welcome guest contributions; feel free to contact us if you'd like to become a guest blogger for Spire.
