Last year, we were very proud to be supporting SIA’s Women in Spinal Cord Injury Awards(WISCI); and what a fabulous night that was. It was a humbling experience to be surrounded by so many outstanding women, who have done so much to help people with spinal cord injuries.
This year, the SIA is hosting the Rebuilding Lives after Spinal Cord Injury Awards, which will recognise both men and women who have either helped spinal cord injured people to rebuild their lives after injury or have inspired other spinal cord injured people. Again we are delighted to be one of the main sponsors of this event, which already seems likely to be even bigger and bolder than its predecessor.
There are fifteen awards this year, including four that are specifically aimed at people with spinal cord injuries, with the rest going predominantly to those who work in a healthcare setting. In addition to recognising Consultants, Nurses, Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists, the awards are also paying tribute to Psychologists and Case Managers.
For a full list of the award categories and a nomination form, please go to the SIA website www.spinal.co.uk or contact SIA on 0345 6786633.
The closing date for nominations is 28February 2014, with the awards ceremony taking place at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole Hotel on 5 June 2014.
