The Back Up Lounge

The Back Up Lounge is an online forum open every other Wednesday from 6 pm – 7 pm to everyone aged over 18 (see below for our youth lounges) affected by spinal cord injury, where no conversation topic is off-limits.

Sign up here

At Back Up we deliver our services around what you want. The Back Up Lounge is no different. You are in the driving seat. So whether you are looking for tips on adaptable exercise, bladder and bowel management or just fancy a chat, the choice is yours.

Update: The next Back Up Lounge is Wednesday 24 July at 6-7pm

Choose from the following lounges (you will have the option to move if needed)

  • Family Lounge– Come and chat with our family support team and meet other family members of someone with a spinal cord injury.
  • Walker’s Lounge – a space for people who can walk with a spinal cord injury, where you can discuss the topics that matter to you.
  • Catch-Up Corner – simply a place to chat about whatever you want with people in a similar situation.
  • Interests & Hobbies – have you been getting arty, reading any good books, or been busy in the garden? Come tell us what you’ve been up to.
  • Travel – Have you got a holiday planned and would like some first-hand insight from some well-travelled members of the community, or would like some tips on how to go about planning an accessible holiday? Come join us in our travel lounge.
