Motion text

That this House notes that Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Day (SCIAD) takes place on 21 May 2021; supports the ambition of that day to raise awareness of spinal cord injury nationally; recognises the vitally important work of spinal injuries charities alongside the specialist spinal cord injury centres during the covid-19 crisis to support the 50,000 spinal cord injured (SCI) people in the UK; further notes the importance of the central theme of SCIAD of raising awareness of the life-changing impact of spinal cord injury on the individual and their loved ones, including on the approximately seven people each day who sustain a spinal cord injury in the UK; and calls on the Government to recognise the enormous impact of the current shortfall in the provision of specialist care and support for SCI people and to make sure that that shortfall is addressed at the earliest opportunity.
