Finding Your Feet understand that everybody is on a different journey and looks after their well-being in their different ways. Whether your well-being is good or you need some support FYF is here to help.
The FYF Footpath is a commitment. A commitment from you to work to reach your goals and a commitment from us to do all we can to help you reach them. Our Well-being Team can meet with you and help plan your journey. Your aims might be to re-discover what is most important to you or to build your confidence, interests and strengths. We recognise that everyone has different goals, together we can get there.
We do this using our FYF Footpath where we’re with you every ‘step’ of the way. To find out more about our Footpath contact Dawn our Well-being Officer.
We have a fabulous group of volunteers who can give you a call to check in and chat. All of our volunteers are either amputees themselves or have a strong link and understanding of life as an amputee. Our ‘check in and chatter’ calls were originally set up during lockdown but our Troopers benefitted from them so much we’re continuing them on as the charity grows.
“I have appreciated the calls so much. The callers are so nice and I am totally at ease with them. I would imagine someone on their own would find them comforting, you do a marvellous job xx”…Kathleen Blenman
FYF are proud to offer our own in-house counselling service to our registered Troopers. If you feel you could benefit from this extra level of support please get in touch.
