Shepparton Regional Network

The Shepparton Regional Network was started mid-2016 after surveying people living with SCI in the area. The group is open and always interested in welcoming new members, and current group members come from Shepparton, Tatura, MooroopnaRochester, Tungamah, and Seymour, among others. They meet monthly and undertake a range of events and activities, including social outings, and inviting guest speakers from various organisations to present on topics such as health and well being, pain management and the NDIS. Please feel free to contact us or group coordinator, Geoff, if you'd like to join, attend a meeting or learn more about it.
