Regain improves the independence of all British men and women who have become tetraplegic as a result of a sports or leisure injury.
On average 1,200 people are paralysed every year in the UK. 50% become tetraplegic as a result of their accident and 10% of these people have their accident as the result of a sporting accident.
There are therefore 40-60 people in need of support from Regain every year. This is in addition to the existing 300 plus tetraplegics we support.
Grants are available for potential Regainers to help provide them with the specialist equipment they need to enable them to achieve greater independence and improve their quality of life.
Each request is considered independently, on its own merits and will be granted after consideration of the funds available at the time
Please feel free to contact us if you want to know more about how you can obtain help from Regain, or how you can contribute. Any comments on the usability and content of this web site would also be appreciated.
