The Foundation for Paediatric Osteopathy is a specialist osteopathy charity that makes osteopathy an option for children and families. The Osteopathic Centre for Children is the name of our dedicated paediatric clinic.
Is of a world where any family can take a baby or child to consult a reputable paediatric osteopath who is safe and effective in the management of children, and paediatric osteopathy is a respected option in promoting and managing childhood health, trusted by families and medical professionals.
Our mission is to train skilled and knowledgeable paediatric osteopaths, research osteopathy for children, and provide excellent osteopathic care for children and perinatal women at our dedicated paediatric clinic. We treat all patients, regardless of their ability to pay for treatment. We use osteopathic techniques to restore, maintain and support wellbeing for a lifetime.
We believe that kindness is inherent in the good practice of osteopathy. It takes many forms, from really giving our patients our time and our full caring attention in listening, to offering our services for free – asking families only to donate what they can to support our work, and working with many osteopaths who volunteer their skills to benefit those who can’t access osteopathy in private practice.
