Your physical health

Unexpected injuries or illnesses can leave us sidelined and frustrated, while long-term conditions can present a challenge to our quality of life. We're here to help you with whatever is affecting your physical wellbeing.

Support that is as individual as you are

Throughout our lives most of us are struck at some point by an unexpected injury, illness or diagnosis. It can be a frustrating and emotional time as our normality shifts from the life we are used to, to one that may now prohibit us from doing the things we want to do, or previously took for granted. Whether temporary or life-changing, we understand how important it is to recover the physical strength and quality of life you desire and sustain it into the future.

What we can help you with

Whether it’s to return to mobility, to full duties, to Saturday morning football or to any other measure of personal progress or success, we’ll work with you to help you get there. Please note, we're only able to offer physiotherapy support to beneficiaries over the age of 18, or aged 17 if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

When to contact us

Life is unpredictable and can throw up things that test and challenge us, from minor sprains to life-changing diagnoses. Thinking about how to move forward can be difficult, but with many situations early intervention and exercise can be key components on the road to recovery. So when should you call us? Well, it’s never too early (or indeed, too late) to ask for our help. Our advice would always be to call us and to start the conversation. We can assess your need and work with you to identify the best way to support you, always ensuring that the support you receive is right for you and delivered in a way that is suited to you.

What we can offer

Ensuring you get the right support, delivered to you in the right way and at the right time. This is the cornerstone on which our support philosophy is based. We know that everybody is different, that no two injuries are the same and nor are recovery times. Therefore we'll work with you to find a solution that works for you.

Mehrban's story

Tyne and Wear’s Community Safety Officer Mehrban Sadiq approached the Charity for help getting back on his feet after a serious illness. "The programme, the drive, the motivation, it’s great," he says. "You spend quality time on yourself, so that when you go back, you go back as a different person. Coming here makes you realise where you are with your health so when you go back you can continue on doing the job. It’s their job to get you started, it’s up to you to stay on that path and continue that journey."
