We provide a service that will ensure anyone that has been impacted by a spinal cord injury, whether complete or incomplete, will have access to the necessary legal support as soon as possible. We can also provide access to financial advice and support through organisations we are partnered with.
This special relationship also means that should a spinal cord injured person contact us directly, we are able to put them in touch with Back Up Trust, who can then discuss with them any support they may need, that we are not able to provide.
