Help create a better tomorrow for everyone paralysed by spinal cord injury
We’re recruiting for new trustees who share our burning ambition that every person paralysed by spinal cord injury (SCI) 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.
What does being a trustee mean?
Our trustees are passionate about helping people paralysed by SCI to lead the best life they can. Using their lived experience, they ensure that SIA are a truly “user-led” charity, helping to serve the needs of every SCI person. Through good governance, trustees ensure we are a well-run and responsible organisation.
We are seeking applicants who share our enthusiasm and determination for a better life for every SCI person. We encourage applications from within the spinal cord injured community (particularly individuals with a high-level injury or conditions such as transverse myelitis and cauda equina syndrome), people of colour and people who identify as female.

- Not-for-Profit strategic finance experience
- Charity finance accounting/SORP and reports
- Investment & business development
- Major donor engagement
