Find out about spinal cord injury and its effects
We are the UK’s leading charity funding medical research around the world to develop effective treatments for paralysis.
Spinal cord injury is devastating to the person, and their family and friends. More than 50,000 people in the UK and Ireland are living with paralysis caused by spinal cord injury. Our vision is a world where it is no longer a life sentence, we believe that one day we will live in a world where it is possible to prevent and reverse paralysis, restoring meaningful function lost through spinal cord injury.
