What's Out There (WOT) Day, December 2017

11 May, 2017

What's Out There (WOT) Day is a Community living expo which is targeted at people with a recent spinal cord injury (SCI) as well as their families and friends. It is resourced by people living with SCI in the community and is meant to showcase options for life with SCI in the community based on actual lived experience.

We bring in people who have been living for with SCI in the community for some years to share their lived experiences with those more recently injured, e.g. hobbies, travel, families, leisure options, home modification, transport, tips and tricks and much more.

The day goes from 11 am - 4 pm and is open to people with SCI as well as family and friends.
