The Back-Up Trust

We help people with spinal cord injury to transform their lives

Charity Registration No. 1072216


Thanks for taking time to donate to Backup.

Over 40,000 people in the UK have a spinal cord injury (SCI), the majority of whom use a wheelchair.

Back Up is a small, dynamic and professional charity that runs three distinct services: wheelchair skills, mentoring and rehabilitative activity or cultural courses. These services are peer-led and encourage independence, self-confidence and motivation following a life- changing injury.

In January 2011 I had the good fortune to see first-hand some of the excellent opportunities that Back Up provide. I was part of a skiing trip to Sweden and can tell you that this charity is incredibly important to the people it helps. Back Up truly helps people with an SCI discover the extent of their ability where they may not be able to in their everyday lives.

Please ask me any questions you have and I will happily discuss the work of the charity with you.


Thank you,
