Spinal Injuries Association
Every year, over 1,000 people sustain a Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), and there are thought to be 40,000 people living with SCI in the UK alone.
The Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) was set up in 1974 in order to support people with SCI. The founders themselves had SCI and, to this day, SIA is run by a board of trustees who live with spinal cord injury.
An injury to the spinal cord can be caused by a number of factors, from sporting activities through to disease and road traffic accidents. The majority of injuries result in paralysis, and the impact of such an injury can turn lives upside down. Individuals living with the impairment, and their families, are faced with not only the challenge of coming to terms with the injury, but also rebuilding their lives with a disability.
With the right support, encouragement and information, people can look forward to enjoying a full and independent life with SCI.
