Welcome to the home of the Spinal Cord Fellowship

We hope you like our site and we would appreciate any comments you might like to make.

The Lions Australia Spinal Cord Fellowship is all about Lions raising Funds to help StepAhead (Stepahead.org.au) Australia find the elusive cure for chronic spinal cord injury – those people suffering traumatic spinal cord injury and currently confined to a life in a wheelchair and depending on others for the basics of life. Funds raised are given to the Fellowship holders through StepAhead Australia. The money is used to fund salaries and equipment.


Around 12,000 people in Australia today have a spinal cord injury (SCI).

The Numbers

350 to 400 new cases are recorded each year.


Transport-related injuries account for the majority of spinal cord injuries in Australia.


Spinal cord injuries were most frequent in 15-24 year old age group (accounting for 30%)

Club information

The Spinal Cord Fellowship project has set a target for the 2014/2015 Lions year of $150,000 in donations from the Lions and Lioness Clubs of Australia. The year has just ended and we fell a little short at $132,000.With research forging ahead, we are keen to achieve the $150,000 goal. Please see the Research page for further information.

Please note the Fellowship is now being managed by the Lions Club of Traralgon.

Now if every club in Australia donated just $200, how easy would our target be?Why not hold a special Fundraising event just for the Fellowship? Whether it be a BBQ, Boot Sale, Fun Run, or any other event that excites your imagination - why not HAVE A GO.
