Our Impact

I first came to BASIC 3.5 years ago having had a brain haemorrhage... I'll say Salford Royal saved my life but BASIC has saved my mind. It's the most wonderful place... where you just feel at home and there's no pressure; you can just be yourself. People don't ask questions like, what's the matter with you? Everyone is wonderful and friendly, staff are so supportive. I can't thank them enough for saving my life. Thank you everybody.” Over the years we have helped thousands of clients get back to work, walk and regain independence allowing them to live a full and fulfilling life.
