The Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) is different because our charity is for spinal cord injured people by spinal cord injured people. We know that the best person to provide expert advice and support is someone who has experienced spinal cord injury themselves.

In the UK an estimated 40,000 people are living with a spinal cord injured, with approximately 1,000 people sustaining a new injury every year, and it is our vision for all of them to receive the specialist treatment, care, rehabilitation, and support they need to be fully integrated and empowered participants in society. We achieve this by providing: outreach support, advocacy, advice, information, counselling, and training.

Every year it costs us £2 million to deliver our services and we are so grateful to the individuals, companies, and trusts that support us to make our charitable activities possible.
