Hydrotherapy for People with Multiple Sclerosis
Following a successful 3 days per week Pilot Project for Hydrotherapy, we would like to extend the provision of this therapy to 5 days per week.
Since starting Hydrotherapy in March 2015 we have seen a steady increase in our waiting time and would like to be able to meet the demand.
January 2016 - December 2016

Hydrotherapy enables people with mobility issues to move limbs which are often difficult or impossible to move. Additional funding would enable us to hire a Hydrotherapist for additional sessions.
By providing additional sessions, the waiting list will be reduced and more people with MS will benefit from Hydrotherapy.
Provide more Hydrotherapy sessions during 2016

Success will be opening the Hydrotherapy pool 5 days per week and shortening the waiting time between appointments.
The benefits of people with Multiple Sclerosis having Hydrotherapy are far reaching. It maintains and sometimes improves mobility and enables people who are completely wheelchair bound to take part in a therapy which enables them to move their limbs freely.
There is a risk that we won't receive enough funding to fund a Hydrotherapist for 5 days per week. The Centre will continue to fundraise to ensure any shortfall can be met.
Funders of this project will receive an annual newsletter detailing the progress of this project, the number of sessions available and the waiting time.
