Our Work with Spinal Injuries Association

We are very proud of our links with the Spinal Injuries Association. Over a number of years we were corporate partners and sponsors of an SIA peer support worker, Paul Rhodes. We are now business partners with the SIA, and remain committed to doing what we can to make a difference to people and families affected by spinal cord injuries.

It is more than just donating money. It is about identifying how we can all better help people affected by spinal cord injuries on any number of levels.

Paul has worked tirelessly to provide invaluable help and support to people with spinal cord injuries, as well as their families and friends. Paul and his colleagues have been important points of contact within many hospitals and in the wider community, providing a link to SIA and supporting hard working hospital staff across the country.

Although Paul has now left the SIA, he continues to offer the same service, and we are supporting him to set up his own charity, and continuing to sponsor him, so that he may continue this valuable work in the future.

Our relationship with Paul helps us keep in touch with those working and being treated in hospitals and rehabilitation centres across the Midlands. Paul's own experience with spinal cord injury gives them a unique insight into the daily challenges faced by those who have sustained damage to their spinal cord through illness or injury, so they really understand the complex emotions and frightening situation you find yourself in. They are also invaluable in helping us to work with you, in a way that suits your needs.

Whilst Brethertons has a team of lawyers dedicated to spinal cord injury claims litigation, we also provide services and assistance that go far beyond compensation. We help with family law advice, employment law advice, powers of attorney and estate planning advice, personal injury trusts advice and property ownership advice.

We also help with benefits assistance, introduction to contacts, immediate needs funding, patient group assistance, fundraising, research funding and other funding for special projects within spinal units.
