The Spine & Limb Foundation (Inc.) is dedicated to supporting people with spinal cord paralysis, sustained through injury or disease, and those with traumatic and genetic limb loss. The Foundation also assists persons who are aging.
The Foundation provides rehabilitation assistance to patients moving back into the community following discharge from hospital. It also provides support, information, advice and advocacy services to enable people with a range of disabilities to participate in community life.
The Foundation was created in 2012 from an amalgamation of the Paraplegic-Quadriplegic Association of WA (Inc.), founded in 1955, and the Civilian Maimed and Limbless Association of Western Australia (Inc.), founded in 1945. The Foundation combines the strengths and expertise of both former associations to meet the needs of people with a disability in Western Australia.
