Aspire’s services provide the practical support that can be needed by those who sustain spinal cord injuries.

The services we offer cover a range of areas and are available to new patients in the NHS Spinal Cord Injury Centres, to those who have just been discharged from hospital and to people who have been living with their injury for years. But whilst they are different in what they do, they all have the same goal – to help take someone from injury to independence.

Help with Housing
Our Housing Programme provides fully accessible properties around the UK that can be used on a short-term basis whilst someone is adapting their own property or hunting for a permanent home.  Read more about the Aspire Houses here.

Help with Independent Living
The Aspire Independent Living Advisors work in the Spinal Cord Injury Centres, providing advice and guidance to the patients and ensuring they get the support and services they need.  Read more about the Independent Living service here.

Technology that can help me
Aspire's Assistive Technology facilities in the Spinal Centres ensure that everyone, regardless of the level of their injury, has independent access to a computer.  Read more about the Assistive Technology programme here.

Eligible for a Grant?
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.  Find out if you are eligible here.
