We have developed half of the Physiotherapy curriculum and are now looking for funding to develop the second half.

At DevelopingPhysio we are passionate about our project’s impact. We focus on training, supporting and continued research whilst remaining culturally sensitive. Sustainability and safe empowerment of students, patients and communities are our key priorities. When we leave, we measure our success on whether we have left behind an informed and skilled community, capable of continuing good rehab practice by themselves.
Thank you too to Penny Broomhead who held a scarf sale, and to Roger Waters who fell but didn’t let his bike accident take over his life, he simply got back on his bike and raised precious funds for DP! Thank you to everyone who has been involved in helping fundraise.
