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.

Our family outreach team, working with a group of family volunteers, visit spinal centres, providing support during relative days and on the wards to family members of people with a spinal cord injury.
