Vitality, Vital Change For Sci In Developing Countries

We work with people who have spinal cord injuries and their family members to provide peer-to-peer training so when they get discharged from hospital they are better able to cope in the community

Founded 2011

  • Mission statement

    Our mission is: To improve the Quality of Life and Life Expectancy of people with spinal cord injures (SCI) and their family members through peer taught carer training in developing nations.

    In the UK a spinally injured individual has a normal life expectancy but the World Health Organisation estimate the life expectancy of a spinal cord injured person in a developing country is 2-3 years.

    Our service is peer Personal Assistance (Carer) training. No other organisation is dedicated to improving quality of life and life expectancy through providing training and support to SCI care givers in developing nations.

    Our Training combines; Health Care – tackling the problems of keeping the spinally injured person healthy and alive. Manual Handling – keeping everyone active and mobile in the easiest and safest way. Emotions – supporting participants with emotional issues that can become a challenge when caring for someone with a SCI.

  • Aims

    • A world where people with spinal cord injuries and their families regardless of their resources and background live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives.
