Who we are

According to the World Health Organisation a spinal cord injury (SCI) is one of the most devastating and life changing injuries that a person can sustain. However following medical and rehabilitation intervention and with the relevant support, a SCI is not only survivable but an individual can continue to lead the life that they had envisaged prior to injury.

Spinal Injuries Ireland (SII) is the only support and service agency in Ireland for people who have sustained a spinal cord injury and their families. We provide a person centred service to assist people to engage fully in society.

Mission & Vision


Spinal Injuries Ireland’s mission is to engage with people with spinal cord injuries and their families to address barriers to full participation in society and to empower members to work towards achieving personal, social and vocational goals.


To empower all people with spinal cord injuries in Ireland to have access to the necessary supports and services to live a fulfilled life and an equal opportunity to participate in the social, economic and cultural life of the community.
