Charity description

BACK UP logo
Our vision is:
A world where people with a spinal cord injury can realise their full potential.

Our mission is to:
  • Inspire people affected by spinal cord injury to transform their lives.
  • Challenge perceptions of disability.
  • Deliver services that build confidence and independence and offer a supportive network.

At Back Up we know a spinal cord injury can be devastating, but we believe that it shouldn’t prevent anyone from getting the most out of life. Back Up is for everyone affected by spinal cord injury, regardless of age, level of injury, or background. We are here for family members too.

Our services include mentoring, wheelchair skills training and activity courses as well as support in getting back to work or school after an injury. All our services help to build confidence and independence.

We aim to help people get their life back and achieve their goals – whether these are about family, work, lifestyle, social life, travel, or simply to feel positive about the future.
