Bendigo Regional Network

The Bendigo Regional Network was started towards the end of 2015 after surveying people living with SCI in the Hume - Southern Loddon areas of regional Victoria for their interests and preferences. The group is open and always interested in welcoming new members to the group. They meet on a monthly basis for social catch ups, host guest speakers and take part in workshops such as Wound and Pain Management and Sleep Management. Please feel free to contact us if you'd like to join, attend a meeting or learn more about it.
