Charity of the Year 2018 Charity of the Year 2018 BASIC have won the North West Charity of the Year! We'd like to say a massive thank you to everyone at the North West Charity Awards, all of the staff, supporters and service users who have made this award possible - We couldn't have done this without you! Over the past 31 years's BASIC have supported people who have sustained serious head injuries, spinal injuries and who suffer from neurological conditions. Starting out in a small office at Salford Royal Hospital to moving to our own site, setting up the UK's first neurological helpline, adding our assisted exercise suit and to installing the state-of-the-art CAREN virtual reality rehabilitation suite, we believe we have come a long way and continue to provide first class rehabilitation for clients and their families after sustaining a life-changing brain or spinal injury. We are so proud to have helped thousands of people across the North West and with the continued support of the North West fundraising community, our supporters and team at BASIC we believe we can continue to make a real difference for people suffering from acquired brain and spinal injuries.
