A Message from the CEO: Staying Connected during COVID-19 Pandemic

With the outbreak of COVID-19 it is uncertain times for all of us. At the Spinal Research Institute we find ourselves reviewing how we work and operate. Being a smaller organisation, we can more easily adjust the way we work and connect as a team by moving our interactions online. However in response to the Government’s advice, which aims to slow the spread of the virus and help protect the most vulnerable in our community, including people with SCI, we have postponed our supporter events planned for the coming months. In time, when appropriate, we will reschedule, but for now we will connect with you via phone, email, our newsletter and social media channels.
