Back- Up Trust Wheelchair Skills Training Day

By November 13, 2014November 19th, 2014Back Up Trust, News

Louise Wright, CEO of Back-Up Trust, took Charlotte to Stoke Manderville Hospital in Aylesbury to watch a session by the Back-Up trainers for new wheelchair users. Maneuvering a wheelchair up and down pavements, around obstacles, along slopes and in the home requires a high level of guidance and practice. For those recently affected by spinal chord injury, these practical skills together with sensitive mentoring as to the issues being faced is what Back-Up does best. Charlotte said ‘I was so impressed with Dave and Stuart, the trainers, and the incredibly positive and focused attitude of the group.’

Charlotte also attended Back Up’s annual fundraising ball this week in Birmingham, which you can read the full report of by clicking on the images below:
