“What Next?” is a free two-day Back Up course which takes place wherever you are. It is an online course hosted on Zoom with live sessions and workshops supported by volunteers who have lived experience of spinal cord injury, as well as professionals in their field.

We know that sustaining a spinal cord injury is just the start of a new journey, and that returning home can be lonely and confusing. With this course you will have the opportunity to learn more about spinal cord injury and how to best move forward with life – all in the company of people who know exactly what you’re going through.

Topics covered include bladder and bowel care, managing family relationships, travel, health and wellbeing, mobility, pain and fatigue and more! You will also have permanent access to the Online Guide which is a resource providing important information about a range of topics related to living life with spinal cord injury.

It covers the following topics:

  • Continence (bladder & bowel care)
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Mobility
  • Relationships
  • Accessing support in Community
  • Legal Support

The Online Guide is available to all, even if you can’t join the online course. Click the “Sign Up” button at the top of the page. Please enter your name, email address, and create a password – you can then sign in. If you get stuck, please do email us.

We will also support you to develop a goal planning document to take away from the sessions, which you can work on and refer to beyond your “What Next?” course.

This course is free and takes place virtually, meaning you can join from the comfort of your own home. Please note that no sessions are compulsory and you can design your course as you wish, depending on which subjects you would most like to learn or speak about.
