Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
― Nelson Mandela
Since SPIRIT was founded it has received applications for sponsorship and provided funding to a wide range of specialists involved in the treatment of SCI (including surgeons, doctors, psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, nurses and managers) and new entrants wishing to specialise in SCI. It has also funded skilled professionals to travel worldwide to speak about and demonstrate best practice in SCI medicine. Well over 100 individuals travelling to or from the UK have been sponsored involving over 36 countries.
SPIRIT has supported regional and supranational SCI associations throughout the world when they have held international conferences designed to improve knowledge about SCI, its treatment and care.
