Spinal Research

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.

The spinal cord is the body's ‘information superhighway'

The spinal cord enables communication between the brain and the rest of the body. It contains bundles of neurons that carry signals to and from the brain that control almost every function of our bodies.

Every year, 1,000 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.

Spinal cord injury (SCI) does not discriminate. Young or old, rich or poor, SCI can change your life, forever.

The severity of paralysis and the functions lost depends on where the injury occurs and how badly it was damaged.

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 groundbreaking changes in the field.

We believe that, with everybody's help, paralysis can be beaten.
