Back-Up Trust

At Back Up we know a spinal cord injury can be devastating, but we believe that it shouldn't prevent anyone from getting the most out of life. Back Up is for everyone affected by spinal cord injury, regardless of age, level of injury, or background. We are here for family members too. We help you get your life back and achieve your goals - whether these are about family, work, lifestyle, social life, travel, or simply to feel positive about the future.

Back Up is for everyone affected by spinal cord injury, regardless of age, level of injury, or background. We are here for family members too.

Programs

Back Up is a national charity that has helped thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds rebuild their confidence and independence after a spinal cord injury. Our wheelchair skills training, mentoring service and rehabilitative activity courses are all run by people who have a spinal cord injury themselves. We also support people to overcome the challenges of returning to work or school. We understand that a spinal cord injury can be devastating, but believe it should not prevent anyone from fulfilling their potential. Our services open people's eyes and inspire them to look forward to a more positive future.
