Wheelchair user research by Back Up Trust
20 December 2017
Back Up is a UK spinal cord injury charity who help people affected by spinal cord injury through teaching essential wheelchair skills; supporting people going back to school or work; providing trained mentors to offer advice to people with a spinal cord injury and their families; taking people on residential courses in activities like skiing and kayaking or negotiating a new city using a wheelchair. They work closely with the 11 spinal cord injury centres across the UK to ensure that people affected by spinal cord injury receive the support they need.
In 2017 Back Up commissioned research into how people choose, use and fund their wheelchairs.
The findings of the research are now available here.
