There are around 40,000 people living in the UK with a spinal cord injury (SCI), many of whom will experience complications from their injury.  We provide grants of up to £100,000 per year for up to 3 years to spinal cord injury researchers focussing on our priority areas, each of which affects the quality of life of people living with SCI.  We hope that this research leads to new treatments and therapies, deepens our understanding and dissemination of best practice in these areas:

  • Assistive Technology Primarily for Upper Limb function
  • Neuropathic Pain
  • Pressure Ulcers
  • Urinary Tract Infection

We support research only in our priority areas, each of which affects the quality of life of people living with spinal cord injury
