Tel: 07496 951117

Hi I’m Brendan, your support coordinator.

I was injured in 1998 as a result of a fall from a wall. I sustained a C5/6 spinal cord injury and spent a year at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. It’s left me with limited mobility and sensation from the shoulders down.

If you’ve recently become injured, already living with a spinal cord injury, or are close to someone who is, you’re in the right place.

Book an appointment with me here and I can refer you to the most suitable services available locally and nationally and offer my insight and experience into life with a spinal cord injury.

Just choose an available slot below and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
