If so, why not join us at one of our informal support meetings and meet others with a wealth of knowledge about the things YOU care about from health issues to work, sport, education, campaigning or friendship.

Come along on the first Wednesday of every month from 2.30 until 5pm at:

The Brain Charity,
Norton Street,

Free Membership

Membership of our group is free. All you need to do is attend one of our regular monthly meetings or social nights armed with nothing more than a smile, although chocolate biscuits do help smooth any introductions!

Our group is as much about socialising, meeting like-minded people and friendly support as it is about staging seminars or developing care presentations for health care providers. As such, we have a very broad membership from all walks of life, with a variety of interests and life experiences.


We meet on the first Wednesday of each month at The Brain Charity.

Meetings start at 2.30pm and finish at 5pm. For more details contact Stephen Cronin (Chair, SIA Merseyside) via The Brain Charity on 0151 298 2999 or look for us on Facebook.

Our Commitment

Our commitment to helping improve the level of awareness of the needs of spinal injured patients includes other health professionals and, as such, all of our seminars have been developed with the help of Consultants at Southport Spinal Injuries Centre who have been very supportive.

Our group maintains close contact with other voluntary groups and charities providing assistance to patients at the Spinal Injuries Centre and we now enjoy closer links with the Spinal Unit Action Group (SUAG), the Sports and Social Club and also The Brain Charity with the aim of increasing awareness and membership of each group and in doing so improve the quality of support and raise the profile of spinal injury in general.
