Spinal Injuries Ireland aims to support individuals who have suffered a spinal cord injury, and their families, re-engage with society and lead fulfilled lives. The charity provides a nationwide service and relies on donations for 60% of its income.
Augustus Cullen Law, as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, chooses a charity each year that is making a difference to people in Ireland, and provides support of both a financial and legal nature.
For 2017, the law firm will work with Spinal Injuries Ireland to ensure that the valuable work this charity does for people facing such an extreme challenge in their lives can continue.
“The statistics for people who suffer spinal cord injuries in Ireland are harrowing; one report states that 76% of people who sustain this kind of injury are unemployed, but equally, there are wonderful stories of triumph emerging from the people Spinal Injuries Ireland supports,” says Joice Carthy, Managing Partner at Augustus Cullen Law. “It’s for this reason that we chose Spinal Injuries Ireland as our charity partner for 2017 and we are proud to support their endeavours with fundraising.”
