Life on the streets is tough

The difficult conditions affect the human body.

The homeless population are one of the most vulnerable groups in society, with more physical health complaints than the general population.

Physical therapy can help homeless people survive on the street and improve their health.

Hands of hope
for the homeless.

The problem is that they rarely, if ever have access to healthcare services that provide physio or massage therapy.

Therefore we are asking physiotherapists and massage theapists to donate their services.

PHYSIOTHERAPY CAN CHANGE EVERYTHING FOR SOMEBODY.

Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

In which city's /locations is this project happening?

The project is world wide, where ever organisations and therapists sign up it can happen

 

Is the service available for all people living on the street? 

The service is available to all adult people living on the street who visit any of the organisations signed up to the program. Young people under the age of 18 are not to be part of this program and organisations working with this demographic should seek their own therapists who can be vetted accordingly. 

 

What about hygiene and the possibility of contracting infectious skin diseases?

It is recommended that those service providers who have laundry and shower facilities sign up for the program. In this way the treatments can be provided ensuring the hygiene standards of the therapist are met. In the case of skin disease each therapist can determine how and in what way to approach each person they treat (with that persons agreement of course). Obviously most therapeutic methods can be applied without requiring direct hand to skin contact.

 

Must service providers that sign up have shower and laundry facilities?

No. But it will be up to the therapist and the person to be treated to determine if and how the treatment can be done in this situation.

 

Where within the building should the treatments take place? 

Wherever the person to be treated, the therapist and the organisation providing the space together agree is suitable
