The Spinal Injuries Association

The Spinal Injuries Association

Most injury types which result in permanent harm or require long-term rehabilitation usually have support groups and charities associated with the condition. These sorts of organisations often provide a variety of services such as support meetings, helplines and even funding for treatment in certain cases. If you or a loved one is struggling with a certain condition it is important that you know what support is out there for you. Therefore, we have outlined The Spinal Injuries Association – a charity helping people with injured spinal cords – to highlight the help that is available after a life-changing injury. 

What is the Spinal Injuries Association?

The Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) is the leading national charity for spinal cord injured people. The SIA is fairly unique amongst charities as it is a user-led organisation – with all their Trustees having spinal cord injuries themselves and are elected by members of the SIA. The trustees also have a range of skills and valuable experience in order to support the charity indifferent ways. For example, there is usually an honorary trustee member who is a doctor who is a specialist in the area of paralysis and spinal cord injuries. 

Aims and Objectives of SIA

  • Offer support and assistance from the moment of injury and for the rest of a paralysed person’s life. 
  • Provide services to increase an individual’s quality of life after a spinal cord injury
  • Increase knowledge and awareness of the causes and consequences of spinal cord injuries
