Description

Aspire - supporting people with spinal injury.

Aspire is there to support people after their injury to ensure they live a fulfilled and independent life. We provide a nationwide network of support for people with spinal cord injuries stretching from the first day in hospital through to their full integration into society.

Aspire Grants offers grants to people with spinal cord injuries to help them buy the specialist equipment needed to live a more independent life.

We provide a number of specially adapted houses which serve as accommodation for patients newly discharged from hospital, and their families, while permanent, accessible accommodation is being arranged.

Aspire’s Independent Living Advisors give practical support to people by sharing advice on how to live a more independent life. We work with patients in Spinal Injury Centres around the country providing accurate information and 'signposting' patients and their families to the best services and information for their needs.

We also provide Assistive Technology facilities at Spinal Injury Centres which help people use computers, regardless of their level of injury.

Aspire’s head office is the Aspire National Training Centre (ANTC) in Stanmore, Middlesex. The ANTC is a leading innovator in accessible and inclusive fitness and sporting activities. Many of our British paralympians and national squads train at the ANTC, and we are delighted that the ANTC has been chosen as one of the training venues for the 2012 London Paralympics.
