Spinal Injuries Association

     

Constituents and Objectives:

The Spinal Injuries Association is the national organisation for people affected by a spinal cord injury. They represent all their members interests regardless of how the impairment occurred, whether or not it has resulted in full or partial paralysis.

The Spinal Injuries Association's purpose is to promote the integration and full participation in society of it's members, by encouraging them to become fulfilled and in control of their lives. The sharing of information and experiences are at the heart of it's commitment to helping each individual achieve his or her potential after injury.

Main Objectives:

• offer support to individuals who become paralysed and their families, from the moment a spinal cord injury occurs, for the rest of their lives

• provide services and publications which enable and encourage paralysed people to lead independent lives

• campaign for improved medical and social care relating to spinal cord injuries

• work to create an understanding of the causes and consequences of injuries

The SIA was founded by Baroness Masham and fellow spinal cord injured people in 1974. The Spinal Injuries Association has over five thousand members and it's patron since 1984 has been The Princess Royal.

The SIA motto 'because life needn't stop when you're paralysed' signifies the strong emphasis they place on leading a full and independent life after injury.
