How the Lottery Works By playing the monthly Finding Your Feet Lottery you are helping…
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% of vascular amputees not surviving to one-year post amputation. FYF is key in addressing this issue. We are directly saving lives!

When I found the charity I was struggling with depression. I had considered suicide. Now I visit amputees in hospital to support them on their journey, and my family have said I’m back to my old self again. I can confidently say Finding Your Feet saved my life.
“My husband had both his legs amputated recently. Our experience at FYF has been amazing. We’ve met people who are in the same boat and everyone treats you like a new member of the family. We loved every minute!”
This is a fantastic group that can help to introduce you to a whole variety of new people and organisations, they will make you feel included and you will make a whole new group of friends.
I have had more opportunities offered to me with one leg than I ever had with two! As well as all the activities, I’ve got to meet like minded people who have been through similar situations. The community FYF has created is absolutely second to none, and I am very grateful for everything they have done for me.
Finding Your Feet has taught me that you are never alone and that there are always people that understand what you are going through and to support you in your journey.
Finding Your Feet got me out of the house when all I wanted to do was hide away from everyone. Now I have new friends and doing things I thought I wouldn’t do. I still have really low days but I know I can message any of my Trooper friends and FYF staff for support.
I’ve suddenly got so many opportunities being thrown at me, it’s like I’ve joined an exclusive club.
FYF is providing important stepping stones to recovery and beyond and just shows that you really can climb the mountain….and even abseil back down. Not only have I found my feet, I have found myself. Without FYF I would be lost forever.
Life changing!! FYF has given me confidence to join in activities without feeling disabled. The support and friendship is a small part, it’s given me the confidence I’d lost. Helping as a volunteer is so rewarding, giving back to new amputees and their families makes me kinda proud.
