Libertatem Healthcare Group has chosen the Spinal Injury Association as it’s charity partner.
We have a number of sponsored events running through the year via head office where we will be fundraising for this amazing charity.
We would also like to offer our employees the opportunity to voluntarily donate £1 per week from your weekly pay to help support those living with the effects of an unexpected Spinal Injury.
The Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) is the leading source of support and advice for people affected by spinal cord injury (SCI), and for over 40 years they have been working to help people who have sustained an injury to lead fulfilled, independent lives.
On average, someone sustains a spinal cord injury every four hours in the UK, meaning that over the course of this year around 2,500 people will be diagnosed with an SCI; there are around 50,000 spinal cord injured people currently living in the UK. SIA’s services include Advice and Advocacy for SCI people facing issues of inequality or requiring guidance on care package applications and appeals, a Support Network of SCI people providing peer-to-peer sessions, and Spinal Cord Injury Nursing Specialists supporting patients with clinical issues and providing training to Health and Social Care Practitioners.
SIA want to be there for everyone who is impacted by a spinal cord injury, and as they don’t receive any government grants, their work is entirely funded by voluntary donations.
You can find out more about SIA and their work on the website here https://www.spinal.co.uk/
You can opt of your donation by giving LHG one weeks notice.
