Support for family members

If you are a parent, partner, child or any other family member of a person with a spinal cord injury, we are here if you want to talk. Back Up provides dedicated support by telephone and face to face for relatives affected by spinal cord injury.

Back Up also provides vital support for families through our mentoring service and our young people’s services.

Andrew, our Interim Family Outreach Manager, working with a team of family volunteers, visits spinal centres, providing support during relative days and on the wards to family members of those with a spinal cord injury:

“My passionate belief is that this role will offer many family members an opportunity that I never had when my brother sustained his injury 7 years ago.”
