Read what Back Up means to people and why they have pledged to leave a gift in their will to keep supporting people with spinal cord injury in the future.


Yasmin’s story

"Leaving a legacy to Back Up in my will was a no brainer for me. I wanted somebody else to also benefit from the amazing services that I received from Back Up."

Rebecca’s story

"I was able to size the donation greater than I could afford now, so it gives an opportunity to donate a larger sum, than I could give today."

Sean’s story

"It was dead easy (sorry!) to sort the wills out.
Meeting Back Up was a game-changer for me – it opened my eyes to what was possible - and I haven’t looked back. "

Stuart’s Legacy Road Trip

Stuart loved outdoor sports. He rediscovered activities such as skiing and orienteering with Back Up. After he left gifts to 13 charities in his will, his nephew Mathew embarked on a legacy road trip to visit the charities which meant so much to Stuart.
