Support for you

Your support network in Somerset (inc Bath)

We're here for you

Hi I’m Gareth, your support coordinator.

I sustained my injury in September 2014 while cycling home from work. I don’t remember the accident apart from being in A&E and then in intensive care, where I was told I dislocated my spine at T3 and was now a paraplegic.

If you’ve recently become injured or you’re already living with a spinal cord injury, or are close to someone who is, you’re in the right place.

Book an appointment with me here and I can refer you to the most suitable services available locally and nationally. From counselling to rehabilitation and medical support, to legal advice and benefits expertise, the help is out there. I’m trained to offer support and advice for your circumstances. And I can offer my insight and experience into life with a spinal cord injury.

Just choose an available slot below and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
