Organisation Description

Every 8 hours, someone in the UK is permanently paralysed. At Back Up, we inspire people affected by spinal cord injury to get the most out of life. We are a vital charity for everyone affected by spinal cord injury, providing services that transform lives and rebuild confidence and independence. We use focus groups, interviews, surveys and social media amongst other methods. In this way we reach many people who may not normally share their views without being asked, and we can target specific groups of people to ensure the widest possible range of input.

    Back Up

    Back Up is a leading UK charity that inspires people affected by spinal cord injury to get the most out of life. The course is for adults with high level spinal cord injury and is designed to boost confidence and independence in a challenging and exciting environment. The course provides experiential ‘hands on’ learning for Nurses and Personal Assistants experienced in working with individuals affected by spinal cord injury outside of the clinical environment or client’s home. It also offers learning opportunities for individuals seeking to volunteer in a residential setting and/or broaden their knowledge of spinal cord injury.
