Our mission is to improve health, independence and wellbeing of these communities through access to activity-based rehabilitation.
The original programme having been established in 2007 for spinal cord injury, has evolved into one of the most diverse and inclusive set of programmes available in the UK providing short, medium and long-term health solutions for individuals living with many types of partial or complete paralysis.
By taking personal, goal-oriented approaches to what we do, the range of programmes and packages accommodate individuals of all ages and abilities to achieve attainable outcomes to realise their potential.
A different approach...
Traditionally, after becoming paralysed, rehab in specialist neurological hospitals focuses on the parts of the body which still retain function.
The main goals in these ‘acute‘ settings are to ensure that the individual can try to relearn as many basic everyday tasks as possible and learn to function as well as possible in light of the paralysis. In these settings, the parts of the body which are paralysed are often not given the focus they deserve.
