Aspire Grants are available to anyone living in the UK or Ireland with a spinal cord injury.

The grants that it provides assist with the purchase of much needed equipment, giving those with spinal injuries the independence most of us take for granted.

Specialist equipment can be expensive and beyond the reach of many.  And a shortfall in NHS provision of equipment, such as adequate wheelchairs, remains one of the biggest obstacles facing people with spinal cord injuries.  Aspire is campaigning to end this shortfall but, in the meantime, Aspire Grants is our response to the problem. Through our Grants we have helped hundreds of people get the equipment they so desperately needed, from assistive computer technology to powered wheelchairs, power assisted wheels and lightweight wheelchairs, which cost about £3,500.
