Spinal Research is the UK's leading charity funding medical research around the world to develop reliable treatments for paralysis caused by a broken back or neck. Every year more than 800 people in the UK and Ireland are paralysed following an injury to their spinal cord. Spinal Research raises money to fund research into clinical treatments as well as vital basic science research. Thanks to such pioneering research, paralysis can now be treated and we stand on the brink of applying therapies that will restore movement and feeling and transform the lives of paralysed people. Our pioneering research relies on dynamic fundraising and the help of our tireless supporters. We have funded over 120 research projects which have achieved a number of ground breaking changes in the field.
We believe that, with every body's help, paralysis can be beaten.
