Every eight hours in the UK someone is paralysed by a spinal cord injury; it can happen to anyone at any time and no one is prepared for how it will change their life. Aspire provides practical help to people who have been paralysed by spinal cord injuries, helping them move from injury to independence.

Aspire’s services include: Aspire Grants, which gives funds to help people buy the specialist equipment they need; Aspire Housing, which provides fully accessible properties for use on a short-term basis while someone is adapting their property or looking for a permanent home; Aspire’s Independent Living Advisors work in the Spinal Injury Centres providing advice and guidance to patients; Aspire’s Assistive Technology facilities ensure that everyone, regardless of the level of their injury, has independent access to a computer; Aspire’s Welfare Benefits Advice Service provides appropriate advice and support, and Aspire’s campaigning strives to make changes that benefit every one of the 40,000 people in the UK with a spinal cord injury.
