Spinal cord injury means lifelong paralysis and can be devastating
but it shouldn’t stop you from getting the most out of life. Every year, Back Up transforms the lives of hundreds of people facing paralysis with training to learn new wheelchair skills and build
up confidence, enabling them to reclaim their independence.
Ever wondered how wheelchair skills can help you get around where you live?
