What is SAUK?

The Scoliosis Association (UK) was founded in 1981. It is the only independent support group for scoliosis in the UK. There is no cure for scoliosis, only corrective treatment for the twisting and curving spine. SAUK aims to provide information about scoliosis, eliminate fear and stigma, and offer contacts for shared experiences, because:

  • adolescents need support and reassurance
  • parents need information and contact with others who have been through the same situation
  • older people need help with pain
  • the public need to be aware of the importance of early detection of scoliosis in children

I was a Trustee of SAUK for many years, but have recently retired. It is a cause dear to my heart, having had scoliosis myself since I was 18 months old.

I have done some weird things to raise money for SAUK, not least a freefall tandem parachute jump and dyeing my hair purple!
