Newly spinal cord injured
If you are newly injured, you will be going through a whole mixture of emotions and are likely to have a multitude of questions to ask but might not know where to start.
SIA offers support to you from the time of your injury and as you rebuild your life after a spinal cord injury.
‘My son had been in Stoke Mandeville for less than 24 hours before a SIA peer support officer came to offer support. For someone who is going through the ‘trauma’ of the situation created by a spinal injury, having someone that Ruari (and ourselves) could talk to about the various issues associated with his injury was invaluable’. Alastair
Our peer support is given by our Support Network team of spinal cord injured people, all of whom can offer their lived experiences of spinal cord injury. Whatever the cause of your injury, whether through trauma or illness, SIA is here to help you and your family to live full and independent lives.
