Are you planning a research project or voluntary work in 2017?

New for 2017, the £1000 Cosyfeet OT Award is open to any qualified OT or student OT who is planning to undertake voluntary work, a work placement or research, either in the UK or abroad. Your application should demonstrate that your chosen project will help develop your professional knowledge and skills while benefitting others.

The winner will be expected to submit a report and photographs of their experience, and to be included in Cosyfeet publicity relating to the award.

Cosyfeet specialise in making extra roomy footwear, socks and hosiery, designed to fit people with extra wide or swollen feet. As a company we care passionately about falls prevention, and ensure that their range includes a selection of styles that provide excellent support to the foot and a secure, adjustable fit. Our goal is to help keep people independently mobile for as long as possible by providing good footwear to fit swollen and misshapen feet in comfort.

“As a company we care about our customers and share many of the same values as the OTs who treat them,” says Cosyfeet Managing Director Andrew Peirce. “We see great synergy in launching this award, to support OTs in their professional development.”
