Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day

17 May 2019

Together with Aspire, Back Up, SIA and Spinal Injuries Scotland, we are recognising and raising awareness for people affected by spinal cord injury - spinal cord injured people themselves, as well as the thousands of supporters, friends, family and healthcare professionals. Spinal cord injury is so much more than not being able to walk.

What Can You Do?

Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day is an annual event held in May which raises much needed profile for people affected by spinal cord injury.

We work with a wide range of spinal cord injury charities and organisations across the UK to raise awareness of spinal cord injury and the effects it has on daily living, well being and socially. We ask you to help us turn the spotlight on what it means to have a spinal cord injury. Raise awareness on social media, keep an eye out for us and join in by sharing and retweeting.

Whatever you do, you will be helping us change the future of spinal cord injury.

A cure for paralysis, so I could walk again one day, would be unbelievable. I want to raise awareness about what it means to have a spinal cord injury.”

Every day three people are told they will never walk again

There are over 50,000 people in the UK living with paralysis

Over 2.5 million people worldwide have a spinal cord injury
