Professionals with SCI network

The Spinal Cord Injury Network of Professionals (SCIP) network started in August 2016. The group seeks to assist people who have acquired a disability either before, entering or during their careers. SCIP supports people with a spinal injury or similar physical complex disability in all aspects of career development, no matter what their field of employment, their capacity or function, or their current employment status. They may be beginning their career, undergoing rehabilitation, volunteering, unemployed, employed full-time, part-time or casually, self-employed, unable-to-work, on a pension, welfare or retired.

The group is dedicated to building a supportive and collaborative network of individuals (with and without disabilities) and organisations who adhere to their values, mandate and philosophy of supporting individuals with a spinal injury in the employment and workforce environment.

Please feel free to contact us if you'd like to join, attend a meeting or learn more about it.
