AQA’s Vision:

Individuals affected by SCI have the opportunity to improve quality of life in an inclusive community that recognises their capacity and rights.

AQA’s Mission:

We enable individuals affected by spinal cord injury to attain maximum independence through best practice services, our contribution to an inclusive community and by supporting those who support them.




We act fairly, honestly, openly



We respect people’s lived experience, the choices they make, the aspirations they hold



We care about the quality and effectiveness of what we do



We know how vital trust is in all our relationships


AQA’s Purpose:

AQA is a provider of support and services for people who sustain spinal cord injuries (quadriplegia and paraplegia) and similar physical disabilities. AQA provides a well established attendant care service (AQA Qualcare) for clients living with spinal cord injury and other disabilities.

  • AQA also provides a valued information/peer support service that operates on two levels:
  • raising awareness and educating the community about the issues of spinal cord injury (SCI); and,
  • motivating and assisting those with SCI during their rehabilitation and re-integration in the community

AQA operates a Quality Management System that is certified in the Standards for Disability Services in Victoria and the Federal Disability Support certification. AQA is a not-for-profit organisation and registered charity.
