Charities

Spinal Cord injury affects over 20,000 Australians. Over 80% of injuries in those under 65 years age are because of traumatic injury, often sporting. These injuries have a devastating effect on the injured, and their friends and families.

The SSA will utilise the raised funds to increase our financial support for research and education in the field of spinal cord injury and post spinal cord injury management.


The Foundation’s vision is to ensure:

• People who have spinal cord injury and spasticity, as well as their friends and family, have a network of support.

• The wider audience are aware of the effect that spasticity has on individual lives, families and friends, and be willing to invest in research to help combat the condition.

• People with spasticity and spinal cord injuries can be treated effectively or even cured of their injury.

• People suffering with spasticity and spinal cord injuries will have a voice.
