Work for us

We’re a national charity helping to build a fulfilled life for everyone affected by spinal cord injury. For more than 45 years we’ve empowered spinal cord injured people to rebuild their lives after injury.

And we’ve done it through practical help and support from our specially trained staff and volunteers. Now our community can access expert help at the click of a button via this new website, while professionals can get the training they need to give the very best care.

Roughly 2,500 people each year sustain or acquire a spinal cord injury, and we’re currently undergoing a period of rapid development to create a network of support available to every spinal cord injured person in the UK. We’re set to become a true association of people and partners, working together to give spinal cord injured people the support they need and deserve.

Become one of our trustees

We’re recruiting for new trustees who share our burning ambition that every person paralysed by spinal cord injury should lead a fulfilled life.

Our aim is to build a network of experts and partners to support the 50,000 people in the UK living with a SCI, as well as the hundreds of thousands of people who are their families, friends and loved ones. It’s both ambitious and innovative, but no less than what is needed.
