Our programme is open to UK residents who have had a spinal cord injury and are in need of some assistance to access activity based physiotherapy.
At present, due to the size of our charity, we remain committed to delivering support for UK-based residents. However, if you would like any advice or to speak to a member of our team, please get in touch.
Our programme is based at the award winning Prime Physio Specialist Therapy Centre near Cambridge. Prime is an independent centre who specialise in helping people with SCI.
Our programme is based at Prime Physio, Cambridge. We do also work with Gym Possible in Newcastle, helping people attend their life after paralysis course. We had our first physio scholar at Flex Health, Hull, in 2020 and hope to expand on that in 2021. Outside of this we currently have no plans to partner with other centres at the current time.
We’ve streamlined this process to ensure we can support those with spinal cord injuries as quickly and easily as possible. The first step is to email our team on firstname.lastname@example.org with your details and a member of the team will be in touch to discuss the next steps.
At present, we deliver two programmes. The first acts as a taster session for three days – this will allow you to get to know the therapists, receive guidance and ideas to take away and work on. You will get to understand the importance of looking after your body post paralysis and how best to do it.
The second programme delivers one session per week over a 10-week block. After the first block of sessions, there is an assessment and opportunity for feedback and review. We’d then look to repeat this process moving forward, providing all parties are in agreement.
The programme is designed to deliver support and guidance to enable individuals to assess current ability and work to maintain and improve. You’ll work with the therapists to set goals and strive to achieve them.
As a volunteer-run charity, we use our precious resources to ensure as many individuals as possible have access to therapy, this means we are unable to fund the costs of travel.
We always receive lots of interest and questions about Marrianne’s approach to dealing with paralysis. Head over to ‘Our story’ page and you’ll see more about Marrianne there or follow our Instagram page for regular Q&A’s. Marriannne is always happy to answer a question.
