Welcome to Finding your Feet

Finding Your Feet support families affected by amputation or limb difference, through a range of sporting initiatives and social inclusion projects.

Isolation is a huge problem for many amputees.  It has been proven that quality of life and even life expectancy is greatly reduced without social inclusion, with as many as 30% not surviving to one year post amputation.  FYF are key in addressing this issue.  We are directly saving lives!

We run over 50 clubs per month in Glasgow, Dundee, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Leeds.  These include swimming, skiing, climbing, gardening, crafting, pilates, fitness and our most popular ‘Ampu-teas’ session where our ‘Troopers’ meet up for a coffee and chat. We have a Tui Na Chinese medical massage therapist and an in-house Counsellor who sees our Troopers for 1:1 appointments as well as group Mindfulness sessions.  We also have an online support forum which offers peer support for amputees around the UK and beyond..

We have big ambitions for how to improve the lives of the amputee community and some exciting ideas for the future of prosthetics, but we’re only a small team, so are relying on both corporate and individual supporters and volunteers to help us achieve them. Please get in touch to find out how you can help us support our Troopers.

If you’re an amputee, please click here and register to give you access to our calendar of clubs and online forum.
