It was the first time our charity have run Spinal Cord Injury Week which brought together a number of beneficiaries with spinal cord injuries and conditions ranging from trauma, accident or disease.

Exercise Therapist, Louise Cannon was integral to the set up and running of the specialist week, which focused around providing peer support and the sharing of knowledge from professionals.

Louise commented: ‘We wanted to go with something that is is unique to us. We know these clients very well and we know that they have got a need that we can meet. We also know that they struggle to find rehab services by their home once they have left their acute setting and the sub-cute setting so we prepare to try and support them longer term and thought it would be a useful adjunct to all the other services that we have to offer”
