Team story

[p]Thanks for taking the time to visit our Virgin Money Giving Page[/p][p]On 20th May 2018, 16 Irwin Mitchell employees will be taking part in a Dragon Boat Race at Salford Quays and hoping to paddle to victory while at the same time raising money for Back Up Trust. [/p][p]Back Up Trust is a charity close to our hearts here at Irwin Mitchell and exists to transform the lives of everyone affected by spinal cord injury.[/p][p]They deliver a range of services to build confidence and independence back into people’s lives, and offer a support network when it is needed most. It also means challenging perceptions of disability – that life with spinal cord injury can be a full and active one. Many of their volunteer and staff team have been affected by spinal cord injury, and have a strong understanding of the challenges an injury can pose. They provide support to over 800 people a year – of all ages and injury levels – to lead the life they want. They are with them at every stage and support families and loved ones too.[/p][p]Their outreach team deliver wheelchair skills training in hospitals and spinal centres, and contact people once they return home, offering an understanding ear and practical advice. They also offer residential courses help people with a spinal cord injury build confidence, give them a supportive network and opportunities to learn life skills that allow them to be as independent as possible.
