Law firm Irwin Mitchell is building on its relationship with the Spinal Injuries Association after being appointed the charity’s first trusted financial partner.
For the last five years, the legal experts have supported the charity’s peer support project by sponsoring a peer support officer for the Yorkshire and Humber area. This allowed Irwin Mitchell to help those affected by a spinal cord injury.
Now, the Spinal Injuries Association has widened its support network by partnering with Irwin Mitchell’s Asset Management division which can offer financial advice and expertise to charity members.
This new relationship will combine the existing peer support service with a nurse specialist team, an advocacy team and a newly-established counselling service. It will provide a greater depth and breadth of support to an increased number of people affected by a spinal cord injury up and down the UK.
Edward Tomlinson, Head of the Financial Planning Team at Irwin Mitchell, said: “I’m delighted that the Spinal Injuries Association has chosen Irwin Mitchell as its first trusted financial partner.
“This new national partnership allows us to provide our full service offering to the SIA’s 11,000 members via its support network. It means members will be given the best financial planning and legal advice, and it will also help the SIA achieve its vision of ensuring everyone affected by a spinal cord injury can live a fulfilled life.”
