Volunteer with us without leaving your clinic
It’s really easy to support the work of the OCC – the UK’s only specialist paediatric osteopathy charity. Best of all, osteopaths, you can now volunteer from the comfort of your own clinic.
Building on the success of last year’s Donate-a-Day, we’re re-launching this campaign on the UK’s Giving Tuesday, that is 28 November 2017. Throughout that week, you and your colleagues could be working alongside us to make treatments available to families who otherwise couldn’t afford osteopathy, by donating a treatment, a half-day or a full-day clinic fee.
If you’re not an osteopath, we’d still love for you to get involved in our work and fundraising.
The osteopathy charity
The Osteopathic Centre for Children never turns away a patient who is unable to pay for treatment – we believe that specialist paediatric osteopathy should be available to those who need it even if their families are experiencing financial hardship.
Without the support of our osteopaths the charity would be unable to help families in need in the same way, and would have to ask patients to pay private consultation fees for their treatment – something we know would put treatment out of reach of a large number of our patients, and undermine the very reason we exist.
Can you give some of your time to help us reach more children?
How it works
It’s really easy. We promise.
- You register your interest with us using this simple form

- You can make your donation easily via JustGiving or send us a cheque… just please don’t put cash in the post (no-one still does this, right?). JustGiving makes it easy for you to make your donation go further with GiftAid so we’d love it if you could donate online.

- Everyone gets a warm fuzzy glow, and we’ll follow up to let you know how much we raised together.
