What's Out There (WOT) Day, December 2017
Another fun, social, informative and successful WOT Day was held on December the 13th 2017 at the Royal Talbot Rehabilitation Centre in Kew. WOT day is designed for those currently going through rehab and those who have recently transitioned to the community to connect with, receive guidance from and gain insight from the wider spinal cord injury (SCI) community.
The day commenced with a panel discussion made up of peer-support volunteers, as well as those whom have lived with SCI for a number of years. The panel members shared their experience, strength and practical advice around navigating life in the wider community. The topics ranged from travel, through to pain management and mental & emotional health.
After an incredible BBQ lunch, attendees broke off into smaller discussion groups to cover topics such as health and fitness, work and study, camping, adventure and family and relationships. A number of exhibits were also available for participants to look at and learn about, including modified wheelchairs and transport options.
Spire and the Royal Talbot look forward to holding more beneficial and enjoyable WOT days in 2018!
