6 Ways to Support Us Without Spending Money
1.Like and comment on our social media posts.
This may sound really simple, but it means a lot to us as a smaller charity. The algorithms on almost every social media platform, can make it hard for us to be seen by those who are not already liking our page. However, if you’re constantly engaging with our posts (liking, commenting), it shows the algorithm that people are interested in what Spinal Injuries Scotland has to say, which can help to spread our reach.

We are constantly looking for interesting articles to include in our magazine.
