What we do
Leg clubs provide community-based treatment, health promotion, education and on-going care for people of all age groups who are experiencing leg-related problems.
Our staff work in partnership with attendees, volunteers and the local community.
Working together we provide a high standard of care in a friendly setting that promotes understanding, peer support and informed choice.
Why is a leg club different?
They are different because they are shaped around socialising. They have four key features that are different from conventional treatment:
- They are community-based, held in a non-medical settings
- You are treated collectively
- They operate on a drop-in basis (no appointments required)
- They offer help, advice and treatment for lower leg problems.
