Organiser Royal Rehab

Organiser of Introduction to Sexuality and Sexual Wellbeing - First Base

Every week five more Australians sustain a spinal cord injury, and another 10 to 15 suffer from traumatic brain injury. The impact of these injuries extend far beyond the point of trauma as each person faces new challenges and barriers to independence and inclusion. 

 

At Royal Rehab, we are dedicated to changing this.

 

Through specialist rehabilitation and disability support services, we aim to enable choice, promote independence and create better stories for people who have acquired a disability or impairment through trauma, accident or illness.

 

Royal Rehab is also a non-profit organisation raising funds to support and sustain our vital programs and services that help those impacted by trauma and disability to reclaim their lives and connectedness within their communities.
