Support children at school
Are you passionate about ensuring children and young people with spinal cord injury are fully included at school? If you have a spinal cord injury yourself and want to support children and young people to fully participate in school life, becoming a school advocate is the role for you!
Being a school advocate involves:
- Visiting children and young people at hospital or school
- Delivering presentations and workshops to students and staff to raise awareness and understanding of spinal cord injury
- Promoting the voice of the child or young person
- Working as a collective team with other professionals and organisations, supporting the child/young person’s individual needs
