Our Vision

WE DO WHAT WE DO BECAUSE WE WANT TO HELP.

We recognise that an injury affects far more than just the individual affected. Their immediate family can then be the next most affected, together with close friends and then that injury impacts on all those other people wanting to help, including healthcare professionals, police family liaison officers, charities, etc.

To be effective we have to work together with everyone involved as a team and including insurers.

This is why our purpose is to help those affected by injury – together.
