Finding Your Feet
Founded in 2014 by quadruple amputee Cor Hutton, Finding Your Feet provides support to over 800 amputees in Scotland. As many as 30% of vascular amputees do not survive the first year after amputation, and many suffer from depression or addiction. Finding Your Feet offers more than 60 clubs and activities where amputees can feel supported and meet people going through similar experiences. The coronavirus pandemic has significantly increased the need for these services, as people's need for emotional support has grown. Finding Your Feet is using funding from The Fore to meet this demand by creating a new Wellbeing Officer role, which will help the organisation suppport more people and grow its impact.
