An Association for All: TCC becomes the Spinal Injuries Association first Trusted Care Partner

Total Community Care (TCC) is delighted to announce that it has joined the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) network of partners, as their first Trusted Care Partner. SIA is an organisation that we know very well, having worked together for many years.

This new partnership is another vital step towards the achievement of SIA’s aim to become an Association for All – linking people affected by spinal cord injury to the specialist advice and information they need, covering all aspects of life.

The Spinal Injuries Association help spinal cord injured people lead fulfilled lives. SIA are the expert voice and leading source of information and advice for people with spinal cord injury (SCI).  For over 40 years, they have been supporting SCI people and representing the wider SCI community to government and other decision makers. Their work in campaigning, education and support is based on the personal experiences of their members.

SIA’s membership continues to grow and they represent more than 11,000 people.  More than 50% of their staff and 80% of their trustees live with SCI.

SIA’s belief is that everyone has a right to live a fulfilled life and that means the life they choose, a life that has the same opportunities as everyone else’s.

SIA’s Head of Investments and Partnerships, Anna Saunders, said:

“SIA is committed to building an Association for All – one that can support our sector to be greater than the sum of its parts – building capacity and expertise, raising voice and influence, and coordinating increasingly accessible support and services to all who need it. The addition of TCC in our network of trusted partners is a significant step towards achieving that vision. We’re excited by what we can achieve together”.

Reg Perrins, Commercial Director at TCC, explains the ethos and work of TCC, and why we are so keen to work in partnership with SIA.

“Spinal cord injuries (SCI) and neurological conditions pose a unique set of life-changing challenges to many aspects of living. The choice of care provider, therefore, is a critically important task.”

“Total Community Care (TCC), as a specialist care provider, are delighted to be working with the SIA as a trusted partner. This builds upon our long- standing relationship with the SIA and promoting the excellent work it undertakes on behalf of all its members, and many of TCC’s clients. Never has that work been more essential than in these challenging times and we look forward to working together for the benefit of all those with a spinal cord injury”.

“At TCC, our approach is to give the client control by placing them at the centre of the process. With our full support and guidance, we assist clients in recruiting their own care team. Once appointed, we work in conjunction with rehabilitation units, case managers, and other health and social care professionals to train a team to meet that client’s specific needs: to ensure they have everything possible in place with their care, to allow them to live an independent life”.
