We are very excited to offer a full range of courses in 2022!

Over the past couple of years we have been unable to run our full range of courses due to the Covid-19 pandemic. But we are thrilled to announce that all of our favourite courses are back in 2022!

All of our courses aim to increase confidence and independence in a supportive environment. They’re also led by people who have a spinal cord injury themselves – allowing participants to learn from others who have who have been there and can understand the issues and challenges.

”I can honestly say it was Back Up that gave me the confidence to challenge what I thought I could do physically and discover a whole new dimension to life.’
