Each month of our anniversary year, we are focusing on a theme – an issue, an aspect of our work or a specific group of people with spinal cord injury and their families. In April, we are focusing on our partners and how through working together we can achieve more and make a bigger impact on the lives of people affected by spinal cord injury.
For the past eight years, Coloplast has been Back Up’s headline partner in delivering wheelchair skills training sessions in spinal centres across the country. Coloplast are a leading manufacturer of continence solutions.
Their financial support and staff involvement has been key to the success of the service, which has taught over 4,000 people with spinal cord injury. As a company dedicated to helping people live their lives to the full, their mission and values make them a perfect partner for Back Up.
Sarah Fraser, from Coloplast, said: “We are here to help as many people as possible enjoy a more active, rewarding life. Since the beginning, we’ve put our consumers first and we aim to make life easier for people with intimate healthcare needs, such as bladder and bowel management, which is obviously a huge part of adjusting to life after spinal cord injury.”
As well as working with us on the wheelchair skills training, Coloplast also regularly supports our events, such as the Back Up Ball and Snowdon Push. They’ve added value to Back Up in many different ways.
Sean, Back Up Corporate Manager, said: “It’s a fantastic partnership as both organisations are passionate about helping people with spinal cord injury live life to the full. The long term support we have from Coloplast has enabled us to grow in a sustainable way and we’re looking forward to working together for many years to come.”
