Finding Your Feet

We give a leg up to those who need help finding their feet in life. We’re all about improving the life of those who find themselves facing life changing trauma through illness or injury.

Founded 2014

  • Mission statement

    We lend a hand to those stuck in limbo. We literally help people to find their feet.
    Life-changing trauma is probably the most horrific thing that can happen – not just for the individual, but for their family, friends and carers for whom the impact is often as devastating.

    What’s even more difficult about these events is how tough they are to overcome – physically, emotionally and, often, practically so that life may resume with some semblance of normality. The good news is that studies show you can be left with a feeling of increased strength and positivity following life-changing trauma, simply due to the way you handle it.

    Whether the trauma you face is a life-changing injury or an unexpected illness, it can be tough to get your head around and to accept that life can, and will, continue, albeit perhaps not in quite the same way as before. That’s where we come in.
    Cue A-team music!

    We can offer emotional support, advice, access to our extensive support network, signposting to other relevant bodies who may be able to help if we can’t and financial assistance if required. If you think we can help you, or someone you know – please get in touch for a chat.
