Spinal Support NZ originally TASC was founded in 1991 by a group of high level spinal injured people as a support group, which has gradually evolved into the present organization. Since 2008 TASC became a registered charity CC23064 and has now built up a vast network of volunteers who with their various experiences are able to offer moral support, advice and information to the new patients in the Spinal Unit. Spinal Support NZ covers the same geographical area as the Auckland Spinal Rehabilitation Unit, which is from New Plymouth, Taupo, across to the Eastern Bay of Plenty, up to Cape Reinga.
