SSIT assists people with spinal cord injury, enabling greater independence and quality of life.
Our catchment area covers the South and South West of England. View map.

Here is small sample of some of the grants we have made.  In 2015 we gave 18 grants, and in the first six months of 2016 we have approved a further 12 (plus 2 more for DOCSTC).  In the 10 years since we started in 2006, SSIT has helped many dozens of people and their families.
