Charity

Scoliosis Association (uk)
The Scoliosis Association (UK) is the only independent support group for people affected by scoliosis in the UK. Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine, in which the spinal column can also twist, pulling the ribcage out of position. Although many people have not heard of the condition it is surprisingly common, with three to four children per 1000 needing specialist supervision. Scoliosis has a huge impact physically and psychologically and it is very important the patient be seen by a specialist, a list of which SAUK maintains and provides to users of our Helpline. SAUK receives no government funding and exists to provide information, support, put people affected by scoliosis in touch with each other, and raise awareness of the condition.

Hi, Thanks for visiting.

There's been a fair amount of fundraising n 2016 leading up to the main event. I couldn't have done it without fantastic support from family, friends and work colleagues alike who have given their precious time as well as monetary donations.

A special mention must also go to my employers Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare (formerly Parkhouse Healthcare) and Specilised Orthotic Services for their generous donations.

The jump on the day was absolutely amazing, thanks to Simon my instructor and Sara on camera at SkydiveGB. Take a look at the pics...(Sorry - only the profile one is working at the moment - the website are havig some technical difficulties..hopefully resolved soon)

Read on to see more about the scoliosis charities I am raising funds for.

The British Scoliosis Research Foundation (BSRF) is the only charity that exists solely to promote research into the treatment of scoliosis in the UK.

Scoliosis is the twisting and curvature of the spine. ... a visibly curved spine. ... In around eight out of every 10 cases, a cause for scoliosis is not found. This is known as idiopathic scoliosis.

It can develop at any age, but is most common in children aged 10-15. In the UK, around three or four in every 1,000 children need treatment for scoliosis & it is more common in females than males.

Each year the BSRF funds a great deal of research into scoliosis. Their vision is to have, within 10 years, contributed to discovering the cause of idiopathic scoliosis and to have improved the quality of life for people with all types of scoliosis.

They work closely with the Scoliosis Association (UK), the national patient's support organisation and also with the British Scoliosis Society, the organisation for doctors specialising in the treatment of scoliosis
