Every four 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 know that spinal cord injury affects the whole family, and that’s why we support family members too.
We are the only charity in the UK with dedicated services for children and young people with a spinal cord injury.
Donate today to our emergency coronavirus appeal. We need your help to keep vital projects alive to support people affected by spinal cord injury.
