In November, 2006, SAUK became officially affiliated with the British Scoliosis Research Foundation (BSRF).
The BSRF is the only UK charity that exists solely to promote research into scoliosis. Their aim is to fund research to help discover the causes of scoliosis and into treatments that can help to improve the quality of life for scoliosis patients.
The two charities set up a joint fundraising venture, the Scoliosis Campaign Fund (SCF). All funds raised are equally split between the two organisations and go to helping those affected by scoliosis. Both charities also continue to fundraise separately but most of our energies are directed at SCF.
The BSRF’s vision is to have, within 10 years, contributed to discovering the cause of idiopathic scoliosis and to have improved the quality of life for people with all types of scoliosis. For more up to date information visit the BSRF website
