Providing foot care to the homeless this Christmas

Cosyfeet are teaming up with ‘Crisis at Christmas’ in an urgent call for volunteer podiatrists to help provide foot care to the homeless in London, Newcastle and Edinburgh.

Cosyfeet are teaming up with ‘Crisis at Christmas’ in an urgent call for volunteer podiatrists to help provide foot care to the homeless in London, Newcastle and Edinburgh.

Crisis guests have greater demands on their feet than the rest of the population and much less opportunity for foot care. The results can be painful and debilitating. Crisis are looking for qualified podiatrists to treat their guests, and podiatry students to help run the service by welcoming guests and preparing them for treatment.

The Crisis Podiatry Service provides a range of treatments and foot care advice for guests, mainly treating corns and calluses, problem nails and blistering.

Helen Moakes, the volunteer organiser of the Crisis Podiatry service says, “Many volunteers return year after year. It’s a hugely fulfilling, enjoyable time and our guests are always very grateful to see us.”
