Our homeless service provides health care, podiatry and first aid to homeless and vulnerably-housed people in the Brighton and Hove area. We've used the grant to employ a podiatrist and to buy specialist equipment.
New podiatry clinic
The new podiatry clinic runs every Thursday at the First Base Day Centre. It aims to treat painful foot conditions, often experienced by homeless people. These are caused by poor footwear, prolonged exposure to moisture, long periods of walking and standing, and repetitive minor trauma.
