Supporting people with spinal cord injuries

Every eight hours, someone in the UK is paralysed by a spinal cord injury. It can happen to anyone at any time, and no one is prepared for how it will change their life.  Aspire is a national spinal injury charity that exists because there is currently no cure.  Aspire provides practical help to people who have been paralysed by spinal cord injuries, helping them move from injury to independence.

Through its projects and programmes, Aspire offers practical support to the 40,000 people living with a spinal cord injury in the UK. This support allows people with spinal injury to lead fulfilled and independent lives in their homes, with their families, in their workplace and in leisure time.  Apire’s services include: Aspire Grants, Aspire Housing, Independent Living, Welfare Benefits Advice, Assistive Technology, Campaigning and Research.
