Message from the Chairman, David Reddin MBE LLB (Hons)

I am delighted to be have been elected as Chairman of the Board of Trustees.  I am also acutely aware that I have big shoes to fill and wish to thank David McCreath for all he has done for the charity over the last 35 years, sixteen of them in the chair!  Under his leadership, INSPIRE has grown in all dimensions but particularly in the field of research.  This has resulted in serious recognition as a national research platform, addressing independence and quality of life after spinal cord injury.

As COVID permits, I look forward to getting to know my co-trustees and finding my bearings with the National Scientific Committee.  With luck, later in the year,  we may be able to rekindle our forecast of events which will present a chance for me to meet as many Patrons as possible along with members and friends of this wonderful charity.
