Regain improves the independence of all British men and women who have become tetraplegic as a result of a sports or leisure injury.

On average 1,200 people are paralysed every year in the UK. 50% become tetraplegic as a result of their accident and 10% of these people have their accident as the result of a sporting accident.


There are therefore 40-60 people in need of support from Regain every year. This is in addition to the existing 300 plus tetraplegics we support.

Grants are available for potential Regainers to help provide them with the specialist equipment they need to enable them to achieve greater independence and improve their quality of life.

Each request is considered independently, on its own merits and will be granted after consideration of the funds available at the time

Please feel free to contact us if you want to know more about how you can obtain help from Regain, or how you can contribute. Any comments on the usability and content of this web site would also be appreciated.

It is based on races and boats of 8-10 people, with maximum one tetra/wheelchair per boat, followed by a BBQ and Disco until 11pm.

Tickets will be £50 per rower and £25 per spectator, although we hope that each person will try to raise at least a further £200, for Regain, where possible.
We are planning to have at least 12 teams, including team captain, with each team creating a catchy name and team kit/face paint.
No previous experience is required and it covers all ages over 8 years old!
This promises to be a fabulous Summer Evening occasion, so why not sign up, and make a day out or weekend of it in London!
Details are found under Fundraising and Events section of the website, or contact shauna@regainsportscharity.com.



We are delighted to report that Steve Osborne, long time supporter of Regain, has been selected for The Rio Paralympic Games, for 100m and 400m, in his category.  We wish him every success!


Owen Lowery, another great supporter of Regain, who became paralysed from the shoulders down in 1987, as a result of a Judo accident, has just received his fourth PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Bolton, which took six years to complete. This is brilliant news, and well deserved! Dr Owen Lowery also has other degrees, being a First Class BA Hons in Humanities, obtained through the open University; an MA in Military Studies obtained at Chester University, and an MA, in Creative Writing, obtained at the University of Bolton. He was one of only three people to receive a PhD at that particular ceremony, and one of only four people at all of the ceremonies to receive the Vice Chancellor’s Award. The award is given for academic excellence and achievement in adversity. Owen is also a published writer and poet and plans to recite some of his poetry at the Regain Edinburgh Cheese and Wine on 7th October, and the joint Regain/RCMA Liverpool Lunch on 21st October.
